Remarks (in general / for this issue):
– Stamps of this issue are rare on covers.
– There is a variety of the 12500 元 denomination where the watermark is very faint up to invisible, but it’s the same silk thread paper.
– The 50000 元 denomination was official issued. The information you can find sometimes that this stamp was “unissued” is wrong.
