This along with its twice a year auctions in Hong Kong -- the centre of Asian philately -- bringing together buyers and sellers from Asia and North America and Europe, are vital elements in making Interasia Auctions the leading auction firm for China, Hong Kong and Asian stamps and postal history.

Chan, and M.F. Huang collections. Ms. Vong, who speaks Cantonese and Mandarin as well as English, has developed many personal contacts with important collectors in Mainland China, one of the world's fastest growing stamp markets, as well as Hong Kong and Taiwan.

Its 1,300 lots, by far our largest offering ever of this immensely popular subject, are noteworthy both in terms of the great rarities, as well as the abundance and depth of popular sets and miniature sheets. The pristine marginal block of four of the 1968 unissued “Great Victory of the Cultural Revolution” 8f. and the 1953 Military “Blue Navy” $800 in both an extraordinarily rare pair and a single (ex Lin Song) in exquisite condition are true highlights.
