Found these while organizing - Can somebody please tell me which countries these belong to? And approximately which year were they issues in? Any info is much appreciated.
Thanks!

re: Chinese or Korean stamps?

Most often there are some key signs in identifying stamps of So. Korea, Japan and China.
So Korean stamps most always have the Yin Yang symbol inscribed on them, usually at top center.
Stamps of Japan usually have a Chrysanthemum symbol at top center.
Stamps of China often have a symbol which is squarish with a horizontal line running through
the center of it. It can be in several different places on the stamp.

These are the first things to look for when trying to I.D. any of these countries.

Interesting. So in case of the stamps below:

The bottom one is from the Republic of China as opposed to the Peoples Rupublic of China.

The republican flag in the background gives it away.

Most, but not all mainland Chinese stamps after 1949
include a character that to us looks like a "Y" upside
own which is the symbol for man or "peoples" in the
"Chinese People's Republic"
