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.
上海:1908年,俄國客郵3戈比郵資卡(加蓋錯置),寄秦皇島,銷上海海外郵局戳(Subtype 6A型),混貼蟠龍票1分,背有一段趣文字 »他們不接受英國及俄國在華客郵局的明信片,故我嘗試用此法。上品,少見。 備註:外國在華客郵能寄信至外國,因為當時中國未加入萬國郵聯,故其郵票不被外國接受。
