Think you're right. A closer look shows it is probably a "G", not a "C", and that it's Type K with index letter D. Shanghai was a B.P.O. Treaty Port up to 1922.

I'm just starting to look closely at and study my HK collection so any help is appreciated.
Thanks!

I think this is a surcharge overprint not a postmark -- September 1886 SG111 (1975 catalogue).

4d Orange KGV with superb 1919 SA S/C "WHITE'S FLAT" cancel
Added this up for sale today.

A Gem of an upright Squared Circle cancel strike - "WHITE'S FLAT - JA 1 : 19 - S.A."

A rare cancel (RATED "RRR" on ANY stamp ) and on a 4d KGV high value almost certainly unique. Being perfectly upright, on a well centred 4d (also unusual!) a visual stunner as you can see for yourself.

Whites Flat, South Australia
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Whites Flat Coordinates 34.512202°S 135.853239°ECoordinates: 34.512202°S 135.853239°E

Localities around Whites Flat:

Koppio, Wanilla, Whites River, Louth Bay, Charlton Gully, Poonindie.

Whites Flat (also known as White Flat) is a rural locality in the Eyre and Western region of South Australia, situated within the District Council of Lower Eyre Peninsula. Originally named after pastoralist Samuel White.

The main feature of the locality is the Tod Reservoir. It also contains the Tucknott Scrub Conservation Park, which lies in its north-west corner.

Whites Flat Post Office opened on 1 October 1897. In 1915, Whites Flat was described as consisting of a post office and local hall, the latter simultaneously serving as school, church, dance hall and lecture room, for less than the dozen inhabitants.

In 1950, it was reported that "the tiny little post office at White Flat remains unchanged" and that the writer "would be sorry to see the day of the demolition of this little thatch-roofed place which stands a sentinel of the early days".

The post office at Whites Flat is long closed; however, the building, reputed to be the "smallest post office in Australia" survives, having been relocated to the National Trust of Australia-owned Koppio Smithy Museum in adjacent Koppio. The White Flat Community Hall remains open to the community today.
