  In addition to Gold Yuan stamps printed by the Dah Tung Book Co. in intaglio, another print was made at the same time in $10 and $20 denominations by the Central Engraving and Printing Works, Shanghai, which made the required plates from the original die of the Dah Tung Print. There is no difference in the design, but in C.E.P.W. Print, one horizontal stroke of the character〝郵〞(post)of the left side does not touch the vertical stroke on the right side (P-77), while in the Dah Tung Print those wo strokes touch each other(P-76).
