China 1878 3ca vermilion, thin paper, 2½mm spacing, SG2a.

A stunning used example cancelled by a superb "Customs/Chinkiang" circular date stamp for 'Aug 17 80'. A couple of short perforations, but an exceptionally fine strike.

A scarce used example of the first stamp issue of the Chinese Empire with this quality of postal cancellation.
