Special delivery (express) stamp[edit]

This stamp and the registration stamp that follows were produced in Chongqing to fulfill an immediate need at a time when the rates for these services were uncertain, and an increase in rates was expected for 1942. The inscription shows that the relevant service was paid for each 20 grams. It was first expected that the express fee would be $4.56 and the registration fee would be $3.43, but by the time the stamps were sold they were $2.00 and $1.50 respectivley. Both of these stamps were lithographed in sheets of 85 stamps (5 x 17).
