Interasia Auctions Limited Sale 69 The People's Republic of China and Liberated Areas

Sunday Jun 17, 2018 09:30 Asia/Hong_Kong

The 500-lot People’s Republic of China and Liberated Areas includes a remarkable assembly of the greatest rarities, without precedent in one auction in recent years: the 1956 unissued Views of Peking 8f. (with Sun Rays), three of the 1964 unissued Peking Opera Masks, the 1968 unissued “Great Victory of the Cultural Revolution,” the 1968 “The Whole Country is Red” and the 1953 unissued Navy $800. A magnificent collection of mint blocks and large multiples complements them and includes the 1951 Tien An Men fifth printing set in blocks of fifteen, the 1967 Mao Thoughts strips and the 1968 Mao Directives in part sheets of 20 and imprint blocks of the 1968 Mao Poems set. A sale like this would not be complete without at least one 1980 Year of the Monkey sheet, and the sale contains two very fine complete sheets.

Interasia’s June 16-18 Auctions


Interasia’s June 16-18 auctions of China, Hong Kong and Asian stamps and postal history will take place at the Excelsior Hotel in Causeway Bay in Hong Kong. The three-day, 2,500-lot sale includes another outstanding offering of China and Hong Kong stamps and postal history, with important Ching Dynasty and Republic, substantial postal history, Taiwan, Tibet, and a large offering of People’s Republic and Liberated Areas. Hong Kong and Treaty Ports alone comprises 500 lots, while the Other Asian Countries includes another significant North Korea offering.


Coming on Interasia’s tenth anniversary, the auctions feature the two iconic stamps of China and Hong Kong - the 1897 Red Revenue Small One Dollar and the mint 96c. Olive-Bistre. Completing Interasia’s “trifecta” is the earliest recorded cover bearing the stamps of Imperial China - the October 5, 1878 envelope from Peking to Shanghai bearing a Large Dragon 5 candarin pair and single - anticipated to realize the highest price ever for a Chinese cover (presale estimate US$900,000-1,150,000).
