Sale 75

Lot 480

China, 1912 "Republic of China Provisional Neutrality" overprint 1c., 3c., 16c., and $1 to $5, on 1912 (22 Mar.) W.T. Gracey local envelope, cancelled by "Nanking City" bilingual c.d.s., with another strike on reverse which is fine, the stamps are in brilliant colours and of the quintessential freshness (the $5 has a barely perceptible age spot on one perf. tip), and, as sometimes encountered on this issue, the $2 has rough perfs. at lower left, very fine and probably a unique franking with the three dollar values. Chan 144, 145, 147, 149-151.
Estimate HK$ 120,000 - 150,000

Expertisation: Signed Herbert Bloch in pencil, R.P.S. certificate (1954). The submitter, whose name is crossed out, was the famous stamp dealer Wilhelm Sellschopp.

Realized HK$ 138,000
