An exhibition of postage stamps from around the world opened at COEX in southern Seoul on Thursday for a six-day run, the organizers said.

About 200,000 stamps from 68 countries are on display at the “Phila Korea 2014 World Stamp Exhibition,” according to Korea Post.

The exhibits include about 20 rare stamps, such as “the Inverted Jenny,” a U.S. postage stamp in which the image of the Curtiss JN-4 airplane in the center of the design appears upside-down; “the Mauritius Post Office stamps proof”; “the 1852 British Guiana”; and “the String of Pearls.”
