China Junk boat with patch on sail

Post by collectionsofrare » Wed Dec 21, 2016 9:08 am

One of my favourite China stamp is China Junk boat.

No matter how many of this stamps I've seen for over 20 years of collecting I never find someone like this one.

I wanted to ask does anybody have the same or at least similar stamp like mine. It is cancelled so I presume it is original 99%. Didn't examined with some expert but I believe it is unique.

I present to you one of my favourite stamp from my collection.

I call it China Junk boat with patch on sail.

There was a similar stamp for sale on eBay before but other than that I don't think I have seen this before. There are actually more pigment lost elsewhere as well. None of my catalogs mention this variety so probably not a constant flaw.

Are you sure the paper is not damaged?

Thank you for your comment.

I tryied with several magnifier to see is there damage but I can not see anything. I will try with specialised Microscope for bugs and try to take direct photos from it.

Can somebody recognise cancellation seal? Want to determin origin of the stamp and if possible exact year when it sent.
