North Korea 2013 Sports - Rugby

North Korea (Democratic People's Republic of Korea) has a Sports stamp issue on 20 January 2013, with 4 stamps featuring tennis, cricket, cycling and rugby. I have posted only the rugby stamp image, the stamp comes in a sheetlet of se-tenant strip of 4 stamps of the same sport; this is probably the first rugby stamp for 2013. As usual with North Korean issues, there is also a stamp booklet, where the cover is illustrated by motorcycle sport and 3 of the stamps, the rugby stamp included, the booklet contains the set of 4 stamps in a se-tenant strip. The design of the rugby stamp is also reproduced on an aerogramme envelope.
