Korean stamp collecting is an art that requires time, diligence, patience and a keen eye for detail. With the recent advent of metered postage, many countries no longer use stamps as a means of postage. This means for the stamp collector that finding authentic stamps can be harder and harder as the years pass. This is especially true for a country such as Korea. Korean stamps are highly collectible and thus the value is climbing year after year.
Korean stamps will be gathered in a various of ways. The stamps will be sold as individuals, most common with very valuable or vary rare stamps, or as collection lots. The individual stamp will be rated or graded for rarity as well as condition before a price is set on the stamp. The collection lots will be offered at a combined rate for all the stamps offered under that lot title.
