Description:
CHEFOO: 1899 Cover from the American Bible Society in Shanghai to Port Arthur (modern day Lüshunkou), with Chinese 1c and 4c Dragons tied by barred obliteration with Shanghai Local Post cds on reverse, sent through the Japanese P.O. at Chefoo where 2s Chrysanthemum was added and handed to the Russian P.O. at Chefoo, with Chefoo 9.4.99 transit (T&S type 2) for transmission to Port Arthur, a superb and rare combination franking showing three different P.O.s in China. Note: The Lyaotung Peninsula (incl. Port Arthur) was leased to the Russians and was treated as outside of China. As China was not a UPU member, the Chinese stamps were not valid hence the need for a franking with stamps of one of the UPU countries.
