Sale 30

Lot 34

Chinese Local Posts: Shanghai, 1893, Coat of Arms (litho), 2¢ orange vermilion, partial inverted print at bottom (Chan LS152 var. Scott 155 var), a fascinating, "how did that happen?" variety; the basic stamp flawlessly printed with great color on clean paper, and then the top label's "Shanghai" (and part of the double arc below) were kiss-printed inverted at the bottom of the "TWO CENTS" label; the sheet clearly brushed against the lithography stone after the initial printing, but the inversion is something of a mystery, o.g., hinged, Very Fine, a great item.
Estimate HK$ 2,000 - 2,400.
