1931 Dr. Sun Yat-sen Double-line Circle in Sun

The 1931 Sun Yat-sen definitives were recess printed by De La Rue & Co. of London. The stamps were printed on unwatermarked paper, perforated 12œ by 13 with the three high values bi-colored. The defining characteristic of the 1931 printing is the double lines forming the inner circle of the sun. This double line was considered to be a serious defect in the design of the stamp. The sun emblem was very significant to the Nationalist Movement and the line was intended to be single. Subsequent printings had a think line (actually a joining of the two thin lines) and then later a single thin line.
