VERY FINE APPEARING EXAMPLE OF THE $2.00 OFFICES IN CHINA WITH DOUBLE SURCHARGE ERROR.

The Offices 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.

With 2012 P.F. certificate
