Can someone help identifying these Chinese (?) stamps?

Post by aerogi »

I have been reorganising my Chinese stamps, but these are the ones I have no idea which China (if it is China) it are. Tried both in Colnect and stampworld, but no luck or perhaps I overlooked it.

1) East China People's post 1949, SG EC325
2-4) Republic of China revenue stamps
5) Republic of China 1948, SG 1084
6) Republic of China revenue stamps
7) East China People's post 1949 parcel stamp, SG ECP401
8 ) North China People's post 1949, SG NC310

Sharper images would make it easier to read the text in stamps and overprints. That would make it easier to identify them. My son can read Chinese, which saves me lots of time in identifying the stamps.

aerogi,

Stamps #2 and #3 are from 1912 - Great Wall (revenue stamps). They were issued in five different values: 1¢, 2¢, 10¢, 50¢, and $1.

Stamp #4 is the Liu-Ho Pagoda (revenue stamp), in use from 1934 - 1944.

Stamp #6 is the Flag on Map (revenue stamp) with an overprint (I think yours is from the Jiangsu Province?) The year of issue (1927 or 1928) depends on the number of stripes on the flag.
It does pay if you are humble and kind.

thanks for the answers!

Revenue stamps are not really what I collect, but will keep them as these designs are quite nice.

I have these Chinese revenue stamps which I would like to know more about. Any information is appreciated. I assume them to be the same except the perforation.

Kimmo,

Both of your stamps look like the 1927 10¢ Map and Flag issue. I believe they were perf. 14, but some do have very rough perfs.

I am sorry, but I can't comment on the overprint.

I know this isn't the way to count the perforation guage, one has 16 the other 20 holes on the long side.
