28 Feb 1915, a rare Sushe P.O. Chinese reverse type chop without date used on a ROC flag stationery card.

28 Feb 1915, a ROC 1-cent flag stationery card sent from Sushe to Shanghai, bearing a rare reverse type of "Sushe Post Office" cancellation mark in Chinese characters, along with two Shanghai transit marks (the first one with "SHANGHAI" in English above "上海" in Chinese, and the second one with "上海" in Chinese above "SHANGHAI" in English). The Sushe PO bureau was located in Sushe Town, Yixing City, Wuxi City, Kiangsu Province. As a small local post office, it is extremely rare to find such a well-preserved reverse type cancellation mark in Chinese characters. A highly valuable item.
