Imperial China: Red Band Cover, 2 Stamps

1916 (!) Red Band Cover franked with Scott #111 and #124. This is a very late use.

These stamps should have not been used after the Republic has been established in 1912. Zheng Ping – Fu Jian cancellations July 25th.

Neat writing, clear cancellations, fine condition. The 1 Fen stamp is a margin val.
