SHANGHAI: 1908 3k ‘Kitai’ stationery card (overprint misplaced) addressed to Chinwangtao, China, neatly cancelled by SHANGHAI POSTE RUSSE cds (Subtype 6A), with un cancelled CIP 1c on reverse with interesting inscription “They would not accept postcards for China at the British & the Russian PO so I am trying this way”, very fine, unusual & scarce
Note: The foreign PO’s in China existed for transmission of mail abroad, since China was not a member of the UPU and its stamps had no validity for postage outside the country.
