Hong Kong 427-430

     This stamp is one of a set of four stamps issued in 1984 with a similar design. There is no indication that Hong Kong is the issuing postal administration on any of the four stamps. The Universal Postal Union Convention requires the name of the issuing country must be on the stamp in English characters (Article 8, paragraph 3.1). Since it is not, that is a design error.

SCN 427

     The map is titled "Hong Kong Surveyed by Capt. Edward Belcher in H.M.S. Sulphur 1841."
