The Whole Country is Red Chinese Stamp Hardcover Journal Matte

$14.95

The Whole Country is Red is a rare and valuable Chinese postage stamp. It was issued on 24 November 1968, and contained a problem with the design. The stamp features a map of China with the words “The Whole Country is Red” (Chinese: 全国山河一片红), with a worker, farmer, and soldier standing below with copies of Quotations from Chairman Mao. The problem is that Taiwan was not shaded red.

The stamp had been in circulation for less than half a day before all Chinese post offices had to stop selling the stamp and return all copies for destruction. Only a very small number made it into the hands of private collectors.

The Whole Country is Red stamp is today regarded as rare. One was sold at an auction in 2009 for HK$3.68 million (US$475,000, £290,000).
