Cover and Stamp Sets from China

Today I show you a mail which traveled for exactly 1 month around the world... :)  The stamps from right to left:

- 3元 stamp issued on 17 November 1994 (1994-19) as a souvenir sheet to mark the 4th Congress of the All-China Philatelic Federation (ACPF) held in Beijing on the same day as the date of issue.  Set up on Jan. 30, 1982, the ACPF was admitted as a full member by the International Philatelic Federation and the Inter-Asia Philatelic Federation respectively in 1983.

- 50分 stamp taken from a set of 4 stamps released on October 13, 1998 (1998-22) on the Longquan Kiln-China's Ceramics.

- 4.50元 stamp from the Foreign Musicians set of July 2010 (2010-19).  This stamp portrays  Ludwig van Beethoven (贝多芬 in Chinese, 1770-1827) one of the most famous composers and pianists ever.  Jean-Sébastien Bach (1685-1750), Joseph Haydn (1732-1809) and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791) are illustrated on the 3 other stamps of that issue.

- I could not find much information about the last stamp... ):   But it looks like its the Chrysanthemum which is a very popular flower in China.

Jiayi enclosed wonderful sets of stamps... Enjoy! (=
