Own Best-Loved China Cinderella Souvenir Sheets
These mint-fresh sheets were printed by China Post, the same agency that issues China’s official postage stamps. They aren’t valid for postage, but are typical of the high quality we find on China postage stamps.
They were made just for collectors at philatelic exhibitions, making them extra special. Events like this were once discouraged or even banned in China before the 1980s. By 1983, stamp collecting had experienced a major revival. Today, philatelic exhibitions are popular across China, and it is traditional to create commemorative souvenir sheets for them.
Selections vary, but the one I looked through had lots of sheets picturing wildlife, flowers, sports, pagodas and more. Several sheets also pictured poll winners for the best Chinese stamps. Every year since 1980, Chinese stamp collectors have voted on the best stamp from the previous year. Winning stamps are then featured on collectible souvenir sheets.
These souvenir sheets are the perfect way to start or add to your China stamp collection. Order yours now.
