9 October 2014

 9- 1953 China “Military Post” blue – $428,654

This time we are talking about a pair of stamps. It is about a rare pair of the Military Post stamps which were recalled for giving away confidential information.

These magnificent looking stamps were first issued in 1953 in a set of three denominations, given to soldiers on active duty to send post home.

With the logo of the People’s Liberation Army clearly noticeable, the stamps were soon found to be an easy way of identifying mail containing confidential military information and were subsequently withdrawn, with the remaining stocks destroyed.

With only 15-20 survivors today, one single stamp it’s made $428,654 at auction in 2011.
