The general description is as accurate as possible. We have to make reservations with respect to the areas in which the labels were used.
For such information we fully depend on information from collectors in China. We have been unsuccessful in getting this information confirmed by the Chinese Post.

Catalogue numbers have been divided into groups and subgroups based on design characteristics. We have adopted this system of numbering because it is easy to add new groups or subgroups whenever new labels turn up. As no dates of issue are known, the listing is not chronological.

Prices are in US$. All prices for the labels are based on our own
purchase prices. As prices depend on supply and demand it may be possible that in the future some prices will turn out to be too low and others too high.

We intend to update this catalogue regularly to include new labels that come to our attention. These updates will be added to the regular D&O auction catalogues.

We are most interested in receiving additional information, especially if collectors have one or more of the labels on cover. We like to know the date and the area from which the cover originates. Of course we also appreciate any information about labels not yet listed. If you have one or more of these labels please send a black photocopy 1:1 and an enlargement, preferably at 200%. Please send all your information about labels to D&O Trading, P.O. Box 97, 9800 AB ZUIDHORN, The Netherlands.
