Chinese Large Dragons sheet hits $499,000

A sheet of 25 Chinese 1882 1ca green Large Dragons achieved $498,849 in a sale of Chinese stamps at Spink over the weekend.

China Dragons Large

The Large Dragons were issued in China in the late 1800s

The Large Dragons issue was China’s first official postage stamp, although it was designed and released by the British-operated Imperial Maritime Customs Service.

This sheet is from the third setting and displays strong margins alongside a decent quantity of the original gum.
