World Stamp Expo to Be Held in August

The world's most expensive stamps, costing billions of won each, will be displayed in Korea.

The Korea Post said Thursday the 2014 World Stamp Exhibition will take place at COEX in Seoul from Aug. 7-12 featuring stamps from about 100 countries.

Exhibits altogether are valued at over W100 billion (US$1-W1,019). The most-sought-after stamps often result from rare printing errors.
