1898-1910 Chinese Imperial Post
Imperial Post Office: Wuchow: 1899 (27 Feb.) Wurttemberg 10pf. complete reply paid postal stationery card to Wuchow cancelled by Bodensel c.d.s. and bearing, on the reverse, Singapore to Hong Kong marine sorter (26.3), Canton Dollar dater (1.4) and a fine strike of the large oval Wuchow Imperial Post Office datestamp (2.4) in black; returned to the sender the address side bears a slightly smudged strike of the Wuchow Imperial Post Office datestamp (11 Apr.) struck in blue and the postcard franking cancelled by Hong Kong (13.4) c.d.s.

Any complete reply paid stationery card which has been used both ways is very scarce; this example features very late use of the Wuchow daters (particularly in blue) as well as the Canton Dollar dater. Remarkable and desirable
