This is a fantastic cover sent from the Shanghai Telephone System Company to the Vice Pres. of ITT in New York, NY. There are 8 Shanghai cancels dated 26.4.37. It is Hong Kong to San Francisco Received-First Flight-F.A.M.14. This cover is 9" x 11" and has 11 China stamps: (1)#C18, (1)#317, (1 single)#296, (2 pairs)#296, (1)#C13, (1)#C18, (1 pair)#C16. I scanned the front of the cover, a good high resolution of the stamps, and scanned a portion of the back. The back has a nice cancel of San Francisco. $28.60 is written in pencil on the front, which happens to be the total of the stamps in 1937. This is an excellent example of some great postal history!
