Lot 10089 – Russia » Russia Post in China
SHANGHAI: 1919 Cover to the USA with Russia Chines
SHANGHAI: 1919 Cover to the USA with Russia Chinese surcharged 1c on 1k, 2c on 2k, 3c on 3k and 4c on 4k paying the foreign letter rate, tied by Shanghai 16.5.19 cds (T&S type 8C), a very fine and neat cover. NOTE: From the beginning the Russian P.O.s in China had accepted payment in Chinese currency at a rate of 1c for 1k. Russian money was also accepted. However, after the Revolution of 1917 there followed a heavy depreciation in the Rouble which led the Postal Administration to insist on payment in Chinese currency only, hence the surcharged set of stamps in Chinese cents and dollars.
