EXTREMELY FINE GEM. AN OUTSTANDING EXAMPLE OF THE RARE $2.00 OFFICES IN CHINA DOUBLE SURCHARGE ERROR.
The Office in China double surcharge error occurred during the overprinting of stamps for use at the U.S. Postal Agency in Shanghai. It has been reported that the errors were among the last stamps to be put on sale before the agency closed on December 31, 1922. The Deputy Postal Agent, Mr. E. H. Murray, knew of the error but allowed it to be put on sale, as he was retiring and the Agency was closing.
A FINE AND RARE USED EXAMPLE OF THE $2.00 OFFICES IN CHINA DOUBLE SURCHARGE.
Used examples of the $2.00 Double Surcharge are considerably rarer than unused stamps. Approximately six covers are known.
