CHINA, 1897, 4c on 3c Red Revenue, Small Format (81; Chan 85)….

CHINA, 1897, 4c on 3c Red Revenue, Small Format (81; Chan 85). Part
original gum, h.r., exceptionally well-centered, rich color on
fresh paper. VERY FINE AND CHOICE UNUSED EXAMPLE OF THE HIGHLY
SOUGHT-AFTER SMALL FORMAT 4-CENT RED REVENUE. A MAJOR CHINESE
RARITY, ESPECIALLY SO WELL-CENTERED. On February 20, 1897, a new
national postal service was inaugurated. Prior to this, an order
was made with a printer in Japan for the new stamps. Unfortunately,
the printer was unable to supply the stamps in time for the
inauguration. Prior to this in 1896, 650,000 Red Revenues had been
ordered for a new proposed taxation. Quickly abandoned due to
public outcry, these stamps lay dormant in Shanghai. They were
pressed into service with new overprints for postal use. The Small
Format 4c, similar to the other values, were printed in panes of
25. Only two sheets of 100 (200 total) were printed containing four
panes each. One of those panes was deemed too light and received an
additional violet overprint (Scott 81a; Chan 85a). Therefore, only
175 examples of this rarity were printed with fewer known today due
to natural attrition. Signed Champion, Bloch and Holcombe. 1465
