CHINA MAO REVOLUTION STAMP,Scott A121 , Proof ?
PROCLAMATION OF THE REPUBLIC 1959
SIZE: 57 X 38 mm
Perforations: 11, zig-zag
Plate proof on glazed card paper, fresh and beautiful prepared maybe for a Stamps exposition ?
Same dimension as A121, different paper and perforations.
Also I included here a photo from eBay: full sheet of REPRODUCTION of the original stamp, made probably now in CHINA or UKRAINE.The seller is from UKRAINE and his an honest seller saying specifically IS A REPRODUCTION.
On the Russian stamps was a standard procedure , for example : 1866 5k black & light blue, perforated plate proof on glazed card paper, fresh and beautiful, proof prepared for the 1867 Paris Exposition.
DO WE HAVE THE SAME SITUATION HERE?
The general reponse in 5 seconds from any collector is : fake.
Not my response, as who really know what happened in a country where information is hard to obtain, many stamps with errors were printed and today are sold for tremendous high prices. Many presidents changed since Mao, and Mao him self was for a closed CHINA, with very little access to information and where errors get the dead penalty or extremely repression.
THIS STAMP IS SOLD AS IS, SAME CONDITION WHEN IT WAS BOUGHT FROM A SPAIN COLLECTOR.
FAKE OR PROOF PLATE, NO GUARANTEE.
