13.12.11 Postcard from China

An interesting item to show you today...  13.12.11 happens only once in a century.  So Wei seized this unique occasion to  mail me this postcard from Suzhou.  Thank you so much! :D  It shows the different types of letter boxes and pillar boxes used by China Post.

Wonderful postage by Wei!  He affixed the 'South China Tiger' set (2004-19) issued on August 23, 2004.  The South China Tiger (Panthera tigris amoyensis), also known as the Xiamen Tiger, is a critically endangered sub-species of tiger.  No official or biologist has seen a wild South China tiger since the early 1970s.

Mailing date: 13.12.11
Delivery date: 30.12.11
