1941 Thrift Issue

This set of stamps was issued to encourage savings and thrift reflecting the ideals of the Thrift Movement. The text translates loosely as "Save to Reconstruct the Country." The set is made up of six stamps of various colors each with the same design: an industrial motif featuring mining operations, shipping facilities and factories. The stamps were printed by the Chung Hwa Book Co, of Hong Kong in sheets of 100. A souvenir sheet containing all six demoninations was also produced.

These prices for Chinese stamps are provided as a service to Hobbizine readers. They are derived from numerous sources such as dealer price lists, advertisements in philatelic publications, and public auction results. Use these values as a guideline for evaluating the reasonableness of dealer prices, setting up trades with other collectors, and estimating the worth of your collection. The value of an individual stamp is dependent on its centering and condition. Four prices are listed here for each stamp:

It is hoped that this range of prices will meet the needs of most collectors. However, a particularly nice example might sell for more than the amounts listed, while a particularly poor copy might be worth less.
