HUBEI PROVINCE HUANGSHI SURCH LABEL
On March 1, 1993
Huangshi City in Hubei
Province issued a 30c
postal surcharge label for use on parcel receipts. The label was issued in panes of 10 (how many
panes per sheet is unknown). The pane has
an interesting variety in position 8/10 that consists of complete circles on
the right side of
the design. The Hubei province catalogue of surcharge labels
by Charles Ouyang gives the dates of usage as March 1
to September 30, 1993.
The label itself
is without the red seal often seen. The
seal was applied by the Huangshi post office.
I have not seen a
copy used that does not have the red seal.
It could be that the earlier usage did not have the seal, but I have not
seen them. The variety is known used.
