Catalogue number:1907 Dec. 2 Imperial 3rd issue 1c pre-stamped card 1st year used from Chinkiang to Ohio,USA, with three different Shanghai post office transit cds, via Imperial Japan Post Office in Shanghai Dec. 6th 1907 for delivery to USA, on reverse with Toledo, Ohio Jan. 8th 1908 arrival dater. The card was underpaid with 3c for foreign mail, therefore marked with a "T" chop for postage due and hand written blue "½4" to tax 6 cents. Lightly folded and with rounded corners.Less than 10 copies of 3rd issue cards with Postage Due have been recorded, most of them were sent to European countries. This card also has an arrival dater, which is very rare when it comes to pre-stamped cards shipped to the United States. This card has an inside frame distance of 115.5mm, which is the rarest type, only a few copies may have found so far with this distance, but never with Postage Due except this card. A great rarity for an international exhibition collection.
