Before that date, it was following the 12th Regiment. A scarce item, still with its own private correspondance inside the envelope.

The two adhesives are tied by a superb strike of the Russian Harbin PO (recorded in Tchilighirian & Stepehen, fig. 585). Arrival Riga 29 December 1902. Small aging spot on the 7k otherwise Very Fine. One of the earliest mail from the Russian Post Office in Kharbin (first date recorded is 10 September 1900), and an attractive China/Russia mixed franking. China did not join the UPU before 1920, therefore the Chinese stamps had no validity for international mail. Certificate: Hovest

96 POSTAL HISTORY imageRussian Post Office in China 1900 CHEFOO & PORT ARTHUR via FRENCH PAQUEBOT - Scarce Early Mail Port Arthur & Chefoo, 1900 (26 February) - International Poscard to Germany, written in PORT ARTHUR, transfered to the Chinese post office of SHANGHAI, handed over innercity to the Russian P.O, then to the Chinese P.O of CHEFOO. Once there, international mail was to be carried only via Foreign UPU Offices, so the card was rightly transmitted to the Russian P.O in the Treaty Port of Chefoo, where the 4k franking was finally tied with the small CHEFOO postmark (26 Febr.: Old Style calendar), the large CHEFOO postmark (10 III: New Style calendar) being struck below. Card put on a French ship via the YOKOHAMA-MARSEILLES line, onboard boxed "PAQUEBOT" (39x10 mm) handstamp applied. Very Fine. (Michel 1x) Wonderful usage of the TWO Chefoo datestamps in contrasting format (Ø 26mm & Ø 31mm) to highlight the different calendars used, one with the Julian (Old Style) & the other Gregorian (New Style). Exceptional travelling starting in the LYAODONG peninsula in Manchuria (Port Arthur), where the card was probably put on a ship crossing the Strait of Pohai with the stamps cancelled on arrival at Chefoo, then via two Russian Treaty Ports and Chinese cities, and maritime via French paquebot. A delightful and scarce item, with a gorgeous selection of postmarks documenting the routing! Russian Post Offices were officially opened on 19 November 1896 in the Treaty Ports of Shanghai, Chefoo and Hankow. Mail was handled by the respective Russian Consulates in those cities.
