China (PRC) (May 10) – Taiwan
Letter. Parallel issue [P1].
Different stamps. Swan goose carrying a message, paintings. Multicolored.
This issue could be considered as the first joint issue between the People’ Republic of China and the Republic of China (Taiwan). In fact it has only in common the topic (day of the letter) with the goose as messenger. It is claimed by Taiwan as joint and dates are similar, but we haven’t seen so far claims from PRC, nor, of course, joint first day covers. We keep it however in the catalogue as a parallel [P1] issue.
