Owner's Comments:
First issued July 1, 1919 by the Bureau of Engraving and Printing. These stamps were sold for local Chinese currency and the surcharged value is in Chinese dollars. The United States was on the gold standard at the time , while China used silver coinage,and the exchange rate thus varied. These stamps were only sold when the exchange rate was less than or equal to 2 to 1. These stamps were thus useful for people who did not want to have to exchange Chinese dollars for U.S. dollars in order to purchase stamps.
