I am starting a thread for anyone who likes treaty port cancels on Hong Kong stamps. Shown below are some from Amoy from my collection.

Nice page Linus

What was the attraction to this area of philately for you? Are you collecting the other treaty ports and the British POs in Japan also?

Thanks for the kind words. I was in a stamp shop in the suburbs of Des Moines, Iowa, USA in the late 1990s, and bought a $5 used copy of the Yang catalog, just because it looked interesting. That started it all. Yes, I collect the British POs in Japan, and all throughout the area. Some are difficult to find, but I enjoy "the hunt."

So check your Hong Kong collections. There are also barred oval killers N1 (Ningpo), S1 (Shanghai) and the rare D30 (Kobe-Hiogo, Japan).

If I remember correctly there were several issues of "CHINESE PHILATELY", the official publication of the China Stamp Society, devoted solely to Chinese Treaty Ports. I believe the author was either Ellery Dennison or Lyons Livingston. You may wish to check there back issues. "CHINESE PHILATELY" is an excellent publication and it's in English.

Hi all

While on the subject of Hong Kong I'm hoping one of you may be familiar with Hong Kong stamps. Have one I've been unable to catalog:





I've found different versions of this stamp but not this particular type.

I just purchased this stamp from an APS sales circuit. The stamp is Hong Kong Scott 37. It seems to be cancelled with a Shanghai postmark. I think I see an "A" at the 1 o'clock position and "GHA" starting at 3 o'clock.

What do you think?

There exists a single ring Shanghai hammer,
if it fits yours would be at best just a guess...............
(Not my stamp)

second opinion, I think you could be right
