The Hong Kong 'China' Overprints
British Offices In China 1917 - 1930

TIENTSIN

Tientsin lies at the head of the Gulf of Pe-Chi-Li in the north west corner of the Yellow Sea and is over 1,000 miles north of Hong Kong. As with other ports, there is controversy over the close date as least one cover and a cancelled stamp exist dated 30 November 1922 and some sources have listed the date as 30 November as opposed to 22 November.
