2002-KPC (Korean Postage Stamp Catalogue)
Published by Korean Philatelic Co., Ltd.


Possible/Probable Errors:

The previously listed (since at least 1995KPC), R1(24) 6 chon stamp, is missing from the 1905 Reprinted by the Japanese section, page 14 of the 2002KPC. Although I'm a very slow-speed Han-gul reader, I can not detect an explanation.

Extracted from Korean Kingdom and Empire Philatelic Catalog and Handbook; second edition 1990; by Dr. James W. Kerr:
Kerr & associates say that the 6 chon stamp was printed in 1905 (or later) by the Japanese to fill Souvenir Book# 2 (released in January 1906), when this stamp value ran short. The stamp's paper was thicker and more porous; and the color was "Chalky blue"; when compared to KPC's# 20(24).
KPC: Why did you do this?
