Description

China 1897 (Jan) 4c on 3c deep red, 'large' surcharge as type 19, "Red Revenue", SG90.

A pleasing quality example. Although rather heavily hinged, it is fresh and well centred with part original gum.

A scarce and popular stamp.

In 1897, the new Qing Dynasty government took charge of the Post Office. There was an immediate need for a large quantity of stamps, especially those of high value. While waiting for the delivery of new stamps from Japan a Provisional Issue was made using existing stock from the Imperial Customs.

A quantity of 600,000 of the 3c Revenue stamps received from England were surcharged with different values. The high value surcharged stamps, such as this $1 example, are very scarce and highly sought after by avid collectors.
