The stamps were cancelled with two sets of Kalgan Chihli Province double-ringed lunar cancellations (May 11th and May 16th respectively), and a Beijing English-Chinese lunar type cds. Additionally, it was stamped with two registration marks: "Kalgan Chihli Province Registration / R 88" and "R 88 / PEKING (CHINA)". The back of the postal card was cancelled with a Beijing Chinese-English half-cut round postmark and a Peking French P.O. round postmark (5 Jul 1909). When the card arrived at the Beijing post office, the staff noticed that an additional sheet with written content had been affixed to the back of the postal card. Therefore, it had to be sent back to the Zhangjiakou post office and an additional 6-cent charge was levied (increasing from the original four-cent overseas postal card rate to the normal 10-cent international letter rate). Thus, a four-cent stamp and a two-cent stamp were affixed at the lower left corner, partially covering the Kalgan registration mark, and cancelled with another set of Kalgan lunar year cds (the fifth month, 16th day). This postal card is rich in postal materials and is well preserved
