1942 5¢ China Resistance

Issue Date: July 7, 1942
City:
Denver, CO
Quantity:
21,272,800
Printed By:
Bureau of Engraving and Printing
Printing Method:
Rotary Press
Perforations:
11 X 10½
Color:
Bright Blue
 
This stamp was issued to commemorate the fifth anniversary of China’s resistance against the Japanese Empire in the early days of World War II. The 5¢ denomination would have paid for a first-class letter to China.
 
The stamp pictures Abraham Lincoln and Dr. Sun Yat-sen. Sun is considered the father of the Republic of China and was the country’s first president. His Three Principles (nationalism, democracy, and people’s livelihood) were inspired by the last portion of Lincoln’s Gettysburg address, “Of the people, by the people, for the people.” Both inscriptions are written under the respective statesman, Sun Yat-sen’s in Chinese characters.
 
A map of China and the Republic’s national symbol, a sun, are also pictured on the stamp. In addition, the date of the beginning of the war and the Chinese motto “Fight the War and Build the Country” are inscribed in the sun.
 
The stamp was issued in Denver, Colorado, because Sun Yat-sen was visiting that city in 1911, when he received word China was free from the Qing Empire. He immediately returned to China to become the president.
