  1. Korea South 2010 "The Age of Dinosaurs (1st)"

    The first set of stamp in series of 3 issued between 2010 and 2012. These stamps are also the first one with with perforations in the shape of dinosaur: http://www.paleophilatelie.eu/stamps_milestones.html

    This fascinating animal appeared hundreds of millions years ago to dominate life on earth for 160 million years only to abruptly go extinct. During the next three years, dinosaurs of each epochal period (the Triassic period, the Jurassic period and the Cretaceous period of the Mesozoic era) will be introduced. As the time when the dinosaur first appeared, the Mesozoic era Triassic period lasted from 245 million years to 208 million years ago. Approximately at this time, all the continents on the earth were clumped together, with the continental areas being dry and rivers and seaside swarmed with ferns, tall coniferous trees, ginkgos and cycads.
