Early Chinese stamp collection stars in Hong Kong auction

Spink will feature a spectacular array of early Chinese stamps in its Fine Stamps and Covers of China and Hong Kong sale on January 21.

Chinese Large Dragons

This sheet of 25 Large Dragons still features much of the original gum

Topping the auction will be a sheet of the 1882 Large Dragon 1ca green, featuring a valuation of $383,490-447,405.

It features 25 specimens from the third setting of this ultra-rare issue, China’s first postage stamp.

Wide margins on three sides, combined with a significant piece of the original gum, make this one of the most desirable Large Dragon sheets around.
