1123 o imageChina, 1897, Large $1 on 3¢ Red Revenue (Chan 90. Scott 84), a splendidly fresh and well-centered example, cancelled by "Customs/Shanghai" double-ring datestamp of "[Jan] 5 [18]97" in blue, Fine to Very Fine, an early, and possibly the earliest, date of use of the Red Revenues, since this color cancellation was only used in January 1897,

The inaugural date of the Imperial Post was February 2, 1897, having been postponed from the originally intended date of January 1, 1897. These blue pre-first day cancellations are recorded used on January 11, 13-16, 18, 19, 24 and 30, and, as such, are the earliest recorded dates for any Red Revenues

1133 imageChina, Shanghai, China Registry Label, 1883-1911 (Scott FX-SH1d), narrow black Roman letter "R", a beautiful example of this rarity, with fault-free face and crisp printing on clean paper. A 2019 P.F. Certificate accompanies, noting "with small faults"—a small thin at top plus two spots (one bottom, one left) of small paper pulls, visible only from the back.

These registry exchange labels resulted from an 1882 Universal Postal Union resolution that international registered mail be so marked by a label or handstamp with a capital letter "R". The US opted for gummed labels, with 37 authorized exchange offices. Labels are known from 26 offices, with Shanghai being the sole office outside the US or its Possessions.

A total of 52 Shanghai labels, across four different types, are recorded. Scott's US Specialized notes only nine of this type "d" label, with Roman letter "R". While most US labels were printed by the Government Printing Office and gummed, perforated and distributed by the Bureau of Engraving and Printing in Washington, DC, this label was printed locally in China, while officials there awaited arrival of the US-printed labels in red.

A beautiful and scarce item, of interest to any philatelic Sinophile., o.g., previously hinged, arguably one of the finest unused examples known, with nine recorded by Scott Catalog. (Image1)
