  Prior to the raising of the ordinary letter postage from 3¢ to 4¢ effective from November 1, 1922, a big quantity of 4¢ stamps were specially printed beforehand to meet the public requirements. With the reversion of the postage to the old rate from January 1, 1923, the 4¢ stamps were kept unused. As the 3¢ stamp stock gradually ran short, the 4¢ stamps were surcharged as 3¢.

  The surcharge on Junk stamps invariably was made in No. 5 Sung characters and Arabic figures by the Printing Bureau of the Ministry of Finance, Peking by metal plates either in red or black characters.
