This stamp looks to be North Korean (National People's Republic of Korea. I have a full sheet and would appreciate any help with it's identity. I can't find it in Scott Catalog.

My wife is from South Korea. She said that is from South Korea and the words at the top say 'Government Revenue'.

What about the stamp made you think it was North Korean (Democratic People's Republic of Korea, not National)?

I mis-read the denomination symbol on the lower right. As I look at it more carefully it is same as South Korean stamps. Symbol is similar for North Korea but as I am not fluent at all in Korean language I'll chalk this up as furthering my education at 56 years old.

This is the lowest value of a 1951 set of seven values in different designs.

A similar stamp in a smaller format with small changes to the design was issued in the similar 1952 set.
