I came across this stamp while sorting some Chinese stamps I have acquired:

I did a Google search and found a copy for sale on eBay and the description of the item was 'China, 1937-38. Postal Money Order Stamp, 300 Yuan with 100 Yuan New Taiwan Dollar overprint.' Can someone provide a catalogue reference (scanned page image) for this stamp. I would like to create a page in my album for this and other similar stamps. So my interest is how many stamps like this are there and what are the denominations / descriptions.

The basic stamp is a PRC 1951 Scott Type A17
I'll have a look later.
La Vuelta race is 12 km before finish exciting !


Right that's over.
OK Nothing in Scott (100 on 300)
Pagoda

Best I can do, is STANLEY GIBBONS China- North China
1949 June
PARCELS POST
Money order stamps (Scott = remittance)
SG Type NC77 P13 no Gum
Gibbons in their wisdom, do not offer opt colours.

4 in set

Yours NCP326 $100 on $10 olive green

Needs confirmation, Your opt does not match the few they offer

Good Luck

This seems to translate to Scott 3LQ13 1949

North China PARCEL POST STAMPS


Remittance stamps surcharged
(Basic design like Scott A4 of North China)

Thanks Rod222. Indeed the overprint does not match up.
Here is a link to the one I found using Google Image search...

Thanks Roy
This is then, a real mystery (I like mysteries)

I'll email the vendor and see if he knows where it may be listed.

I think you'll find this design was not used by North China nor any Communist area. It was only the surcharge reading in part "North China post" that made the one rod saw a North China stamp.

This is a money order stamp inscribed "Central China Post" at right. Central China (your catalog might say "Shanghai and Nanking"), during WWII, was an occupation postal district where the post offices were run by the Nationalist post office(!) under Japanese supervision. That thought makes my head spin. But this might date from later.

Anyway, the two horizontal characters at top read "Taiwan". That this was used there is confirmed by the cancel that I think is Taiwan or Taipei central (P.O.) at bottom with a code character between.

EDIT: The cancel type is definitely Chinese to me, so this is then post-1945 for Taiwan. The date appears to be year 50-something, that being after 1961. And the stated New Taiwan dollars is Rep. of China currency after 1949.

In the end, I think this is a surcharged money order stamp. If someone has a Chinese revenue catalog that includes money order stamps, a check would be appreciated.

Hi By-brasil,

The top two character was not "Taiwan", but "Taiwan dollar".
