14 Apr 1899, a very rare ICHANG dollar chop to Australia used in a C.I.P. 1st series stationery card, plus the "I.P.O." cancelled on the QV stamps.

14 Apr 1899, a C.I.P. 1st series stationery card sent from ICHANG to Australia, uprated with a 1-cent and a 2-cent Japan Coiling Dragon stamps, plus two Hong Kong Victoria 2c stamps where the "I.P.O." stamp was applied across. The Japan Coiling Dragon Stamps were cancelled by the rare ICHANG dollar chop (the 5th day of the third month, 25th year of the Kwangsu reign), and a Hong-Kong transit c.d.s. ICHANG dollar chop is quite rare, especially with the 'I.P.O.' cancellation, together with Japan Coiling Dragon Stamps affixed.
