Autumn 2022 Sales Special Features: Forerunner to IPO Tie-print


【Forerunner to IPO Tie-print】

Customs Hankow, 1897. Hankow to London. Cash cover with French 10c + 15c stamps cancelled by Customs Hankow cds (19 Feb), transit Customs Shanghai 22 Feb. Transferred to French PO 24 Feb, to arrive at London 1 Apr. Extremely rare incidence of Chinese cds cancelling foreign stamp which might aim at stopping pilliferage therefore fore-runner to the IPO tie-print.

海關日戳蓋銷法國郵票,以防途中郵票被揭,可謂是IPO的前身,因外方不滿,極少見。
