Book# 8.
In 1961 the ROK Ministry of Communications issued a dark blue book, tied with a blue ribbon, marked "Imperial Korea Postage Stamps (Reproduction)". It includes copies of Moon, Poon, First Provisional (1 poon surcharge, 1900), TH red and black (Tai Han overprint), Small Chon (1900-01), the 1st Commemorative, Second Provisional (1,2,3 chon surcharge), Falcon, and 3rd printing of the Small Chon.

Sizes, colors perfs are not true. This should be regarded as facsimile (almost fake), not as a reissue.
