LotNo. Symbol Lot Description
314 image1875 (Sept. 27), pre-adhesive Customs Post cover from Takow to Hong Kong, a red band cover addressed to "Yid De Fan Yi, Shopkeeper" in central Hong Kong, with reverse showing "Customs/SEP 27/75/Takow" datestamp, then sent onward by sea to Amoy, where "Customs/SEP 30/75/Amoy" dater was subsequently applied; after arriving at Amoy, the cover then went onto a ship, which carried it to Hong Kong, where the letter was then hand carried to the recipient—thus the absence of any Hong Kong arrival markings; the cover shows signs of aging, along with an edge tear which travels to the outer circle portion of the Takow Customs dater, all this somewhat insignificant in scope.
Estimate HK$ 500,000 - 600,000

This cover has an amazing "sister" cover, written in the same hand, and addressed to the same shopkeeper in Hong Kong, with both the Takow and Amoy markings each a mere two days earlier than on this cover.

This "sister" cover, which presently resides in the Taiwan Postal Museum, was formerly owned by the eminent Japanese philatelist, Meiso Mizuhara, and imaged on page 19 of Volume 1 of "China-Customs Post, Pre-Adhesive Era". It is again featured on page 829 of the Chinese version of "Revenue Surcharges China 1897", Vol. 2, produced by the Directorate General of Posts, Ministry of Communication at Taiwan

For years, this cover (as noted in Mizuhara) was the only known example used in Formosa in the pre-adhesive era. This companion cover quite possibly may represent the only opportunity to possess a cover from the early Customs period of Taiwan.
