World Stamp Catalogue/China



There is no standard of colour names used by all catalogues of Chinese stamps. Thus, for the sake of consistency the colours used by the "Revised and Supplemented 1998 Edition" of Ma's Illustrated Catalogue of the Stamps of China, edited by Lee H. Hill, Jr., Hill-Donnelly Corp., Tampa, FL. This is being used for all stamps of China issued up to and including 1949.
