500 years of discovery of America by Columbus

Date of Issue: March 10, 1988
Scott #: 2718 a-c

Many countries issued stamps to commemorate this event. These strip of three stamps and also a souvenir sheet were issued by North Korea. Christopher Columbus' ships Santa Maria is seen on first stamp, Pinta on the second, and Nina on the last stamp.

I wonder why these stamps were issued in 1988 instead of 1992.


  1. Great Post. Hope some items from me get to you soon. Have a very Happy Birthday!

  2. lovely strip of 3 stamps, and a great upper marginal with the inscription! Have you gotten hold of the souvenir sheet too as yet?
