CHINA Treaty Ports, Shanghai 1866 16c Green Small Dragon IMPERF query?

Dear Members

I have a strange stamp, it is an example of the China/Municipal Posts of Treaty Ports, Shanghai: 1866 16c Green Small Dragon.

I am confused by it as it has no perforations at all.

Now, I have no others to lay over the imperforated example to try to establish whether or not the perforations have simply been cut off, however, if this was the case the stamp would have to have been perfectly centred due to it being perfectly even on all sides.

So my question is, do I have an imperforated example of the China/Municipal Posts of Treaty Ports, Shanghai: 1866 16c Green Small Dragon - unlikely but an interesting thought.

I have enclosed a picture of my stamp (imperforate) and a picture of a genuine perforated issue.

Any help here would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks and best wishes

Rachael

Hi -

We NEVER do 4 word vague headings like -

SHANGHAI TREATY PORT STAMP

And all caps on the web is regarded as 'SHOUTING'.

Pretty fuzzy and super low rez scan, so near impossible to say whether genuine or some modern ebay photocopy etc.

My apologies, I didn't mean to offend anyone, I will retract it if possible. This is the first time I have ever posted so your reply has made the point very clear. I apologise to all
