China People's Republic general issues 1968 Directives of Mao Tse-tung se-tenant strip of 5, SG2397/2401.

A fine unmounted mint strip with full original gum. Lightly folded between third and fourth stamps.

A scarce and popular Cultural Revolution issue.

Each of the five stamps in the se-tenant strip features a statement from Chairman Mao about the Chinese Cultural Revolution. The stamps are distinguished by the number of lines of text over Mao’s signature.

The US Scott catalogue lists a never-hinged strip at a value of $7,000. However, the value is italicised to indicate that it is an item which is difficult to value due to limited market data.

This is one of the rarest and most famous philatelic items of the People’s Republic of China.
