Inaugural auction in July 2022 with record-breaking results. Next auction November 2022!

Inaugural Auction—Special Features 香港首拍 拍品介紹


Our 1942 DR. SUN YAT-SEN CENTRAL TRUST PRINT 16 CENT OVERPRINTS & SURCHARGES Special Sales will be conducted in the afternoon of 2 July 2022. The Chinese Post ordered in October 1942 the 16c stamps (for domestic postage) overprinted locally “Surcharge for Domestic Postage Paid” and sold for $1.16 (the original 16c face value plus a $1 domestic mail surcharge). The resulting outrage from a public already suffering from rampant inflation forced the post office to back down and reduce the domestic tariff increase to 50c. This die proof of stamp denominated at $1.16 was therefore never approved.

2022年7月2日下午的1942年中山像中信版壹角陸分及其加蓋改值郵票專場。1942年10月,總局要求在平信郵資的基礎上徵收1元附加費,並在16分郵票上加蓋“國內平信附加已付”,但調整幅度過猛,備受抨擊,不得不撤銷,此附加費僅在消息未能通達的地方使用數日。爲此預備面值為1.16元的樣票也未能通過,鮮有流出。
