Korea (Democratic People's Republic of )


A very old , Soviet style envelope from Noth Korea

As typed by old type of typewriter, it is not easy to find a new one nowadays, or any "Ink" for its use...

This is a very common North Korean style TP cover... as seen there are very few stamped cover from those Government departments, those external propaganda departments after 1999 (Korea Publications Exchange Association is in charge of issuing those DPR Korea publications to the world, also a easily get known deoprtment oter than Korea Stamp Corporation)

On cover there is the image of Rungrado May Day Stadium. Opened at the first of May in 1989. The stadium can seat 150,000, which is the largest non- auto racing stadium capacity in the world.

The Stadium is also famous of the "Arirang" mass game, with more than 100,000 participants a time.
