About Chinese Stamp

What are some of the most valuable Chinese stamps of the 1890s? Following the successful deployment of the one-half-cent stamp that was printed in Japan, the Chinese developed an Imperial Chinese stamp, which broke the rules and went out to consumers in the middle of August of that year. Denominations ranged from half-cent stamps to five-dollar stamps during this time.Ironically, China's greatest symbol of power, the dragon, was relegated to the lower-priced stamps. A popular fish, the carp, was featured in the middle-range stamps. For the one- and five-dollar stamps, the Chinese post featured the visage of a wild goose. The post continued to produce the stamps up until the Qing Empire's demise in 1910.In a bit of historical irony, the Imperial government issued a series of commemorative stamps in 1909 as a means of honoring the new Emperor. These stamps, which featured the Temple of Heaven in the Forbidden City of Beijing, came in three different denominations--two cent, three cent, and seven cent. Following the Chinese rebellion of 1911 and 1912, the revolutionaries quickly seized control of postal production.In 1912, the new government created a stamp, which it printed with London's help. Sets of stamps honoring Sun Yat-sen and his fellow revolutionary Yuan Shikai were printed as a show of strength. The new government kept the postal system in order for a decade. However, subsequent wars and disaffection in China prevented regular issuance of usable stamps, particularly during the hard years of the 1920s.
