II surcharge, a phenomenal rarity of the Offices in Peking with this extremely rare type of surcharge with all capital letters in "DOLLARI", beautifully fresh and intense colors on bright white paper, full clean o.g. that has only been very lightly hinged, very fine. Often overprints that come in different types are varieties within the overprint setting. Such is not the case with the Two Dollar overprints of the Offices in China. The most common type of Peking was made by adding a surcharge with "dollari" in lower case to an already overprinted stamp for Peking from the previous issue. In the same year of 1919 this extremely rare type with "DOLLARI" in all capital letters was produced. The final type was produced in 1920 being similar to the first type with all letters lower case, but in this instance both the surcharge and the Peking overprint were all one handstamp which made "Pechino" shorter. The two later types of the Two Dollar value are important rarities of the Italian Offices, but the type with all capital letters in "DOLLARI" is a major rarity without equal. It is noted in the Sassone catalog that only fifteen stamps are known, which includes stamps that are both mint and used, ranking this stamp among world class rarities of any of the foreign offices in China or any other area; signed Raybaudi, A. D(iena) and E(nzo) Diena, plus accompanied by a 1982 Enzo Diena certificate (Scott #30a; $34,500.00). (Image) €110,000
