Hi I would like to buy Chinese small and Large Dragons stamps like ones pictured. Even lower denominations like this.

Multiples would especially be welcome (i.e. pairs strips blocks), even lower values. All types welcome. The nicer the cancels the better. Even if condition is not 100% I still may be interested. Please let me know what you are asking..

Please show sample pics thank you

Regards RussellA

I noted Imperial China coiling dragon stamps are actively traded these days, every lot selling at eBay was sold at about the same average price for used stamps and for mint stamps. Conditions and denominations do not seem to matter, it is the number that counts. Just wondering where the stamps are going and what are they being used for?

Maybe the Chinese have discovered Scrapbooking and making stamp collages. :mrgreen:

A couple of weeks ago I asked a friend who regularly travels to China the same question.

He told me that Coiling Dragons sell at local markets for about US$ 5 each and that Republic overprints at US$3 each, even the low common face values,

Hi the point of this post is that I am interested in building a collection of these Imperial Dragons. So if anyone has any excess or spares they want to offload (budget allowing) please let me know!

So if anyone has any Chinese Imperial Dragon stamps that they want to offload at a reasonable price please let me know. I am English and have no links in the local Chinese markets!!

Thanks RussellA

Interesting results from Phila China auction last Sat April 9, several lots of used dragon stamps went for quite a bit of money!
Lot 12 - 86 stamps $13,800
Lot 14 - 50 stamps $3,450
Lot 15 - 60 stamps $9,200
Lot 16 - 56 stamps $13,800

May be this is the best and easiest way to invest Imperial China stamps, no worries about conditions, complete set etc. Is the number that counts

Old China, even coiling dragon and junks low values, seem to get good interest on eBay, with prices well above what you'd expect based on the Gibbons cat. values.

Maybe cancel collection has taken off in a big way in China?
