1897 Red Revenues, surcharged small "4 cents" on 3c red, unused large part original gum, with some adhesions and faint toning, irregular perforations at top, well centered and fine appearing example of this rare stamp. On February 20, 1897, a new national postal service was inaugurated in China. Prior to this, an order was made with a printer in Japan, but he was unable to supply the stamps in time for the inauguration. Prior to this in 1896, 650,000 Red Revenues had been ordered for a new proposed taxation. Quickly abandoned due to public outcry, these stamps were pressed into service with new overprints for postal use. The Small Format 4c, similar to the other values, were printed in panes of 25. Only two sheets of 100 (200 total) were printed containing four panes each. One of those panes was deemed too light and received an additional violet overprint (Scott 81a; Chan 85a). Therefore, only 175 examples of this rarity were available, obviously with fewer known today due to natural attrition (Chan 85)
