Lot 2146 Taiwan, 1945 (26 Oct.) envelope bearing Chinese Republic Dr. Sun Yat-sen Paicheng printing (typographed) $10 strip of five, cancelled by Japanese Colonial "Taipeh" c.d.s. with Showa Year "20" designation. An important cover. Assumed to be a "handback" item, which was never actually mailed, since Mainland stamps were denominated in C.N.C., and not in Taiwan currency.
Estimate HK$ 6,000 - 8,000


BELIEVED TO BE ONE OF ONLY THREE SUCH COVERS IN EXISTENCE.

All three envelopes were prepared by U.S. Naval Officer Donald E. Granger, serving on LST 627, which landed Nationalist Chinese forces at Keelung Harbour to officially transfer control of the colony from Japan to Nationalist China. The ceremony was held on 25 October, and has since been commemorated annually in Taiwan as Retrocession Day.

Although the Blackburn/Sieh rate book indicates that Taiwan's domestic rates began on 25 October, it is highly unlikely that Nationalist controlled post offices were functioning on that day. The 26 October was probably the true first day of "Chinese" postal operations, but only Japanese stamps were available at that time, including the Numerals unsurcharged 3 sen, 5 sen and 10sen, which were issued on 20 October, and of which no postally used covers are known. Taiwan's Numeral surcharged stamps were not issued until 4 November.
