German Post in China, Qingdao. Cover with an overprinted Reichspost 10 Pfennig red – stamp, tied by a TSINTAU 2 / 7 99 KIAUTSCHOU – cancellation. This is a mistake: It should be 2 / 8, August, not July. The Chinese and German cancellation at the reverse are correct with Aug 4 and 4/8. Vertical fold otherwise good condition.
