Minimum Bid: $500.00
Sold Price: $25,428.00 (includes buyer's premium)


Chinese revolutionary and politician (1898-1976) who was the chief diplomatic representative of the Communist Party as the Premier of the People’s Republic of China from 1949–76. Exceedingly rare Czechoslovakian commemorative FDC with a cachet honoring Antonin Zapotocky, and bearing a December 18, 1954, Prague postmark, signed on the front in Chinese in purple ink and dated December 3, 1957. Also signed on the front, in Chinese by Minister of Sports Marshal Ho Lung and Madame Sung Tching-Ling (second wife of Sun Yat-sen, leader of the 1911 revolution that established the Republic of China), she was given the special title of Honorary Chairman of the People's Republic of China in May 1981. In fine condition, with pencil notations along top edge, as well as light pencil numerals next to each signature, and ink notations, in Czech, on the reverse. Incredibly rare in any form, this is only the second Chou En-Lai item we have ever offered, and American Book Prices Current lists just three examples selling in the last 27 years. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
