La période philatélique de la République de Chine 1945 – 1949 est largement documentée par un grand nombre d’étude et d’analyse sur les émissions de cette époque et en particulier les années de forte inflation qui a conduit les autorités locales à surcharger les émissions en gonflant les valeurs faciales ou en accompagnant les changements de monnaie. Les opuscules ci dessous vous permettront d’identifier, classer et étudier la philatélie de cette période.
The catalogue of Unit and Silver Yuan Stamps of China 1974 74 pages par S.H. Chan en couleur additif en mai 1986
Nearly one hundred years have passed since the establishment of Custom Postal Service in our country. Most of the rare stamps found in this Century were those of the temporary overprints or surcharges. By arranging their times of issue in chrono-logical order, these stamps may be classified into five stages. The first stage included various 1897 surcharged on Empress Dowager commemoratives and red revenue stamps when postal service was separated from Custom. The second stage included stamps issued in 1912 when the Ching Dynasty was overthrown. Notable issues were Neutrality overprint, Shanghai Custom overprint, London overprint and various local overprint of Republic of China. The third was the provincial overprint of « Surcharge for Domestic Postage Paid » during Anti-Japanese War in 1942. The fourth was the Unit and Silver-Yuan Basic stamps issued during the great surge of times in 1949. The fifth was the Flying-Gees stamp overprinted Taiwan currency. The rare stamps appeared in the various periods bore diversed historical factors and backgrounds, and the greatest attraction to the philatelists who spend money and efforts in the work of philately is on account of their scarce circulations.
Mr. S. H. Chan who shares my interest has engaged in philately for scores of years. Both his knowledge and collection are ample. He is well aware of the fact that no detail systematical publication of Unit and Silver-Yuan stamps have so far been published. In view of this, Mr. Chan wrote this book in Chinese and English during his spare time, which is highly contributive to the work of international philatelists. I therefore take the pleasure to give this recommendation.
