I forgot that you mail to yourself from abroad (or have others mail for you)......I should have recognized this.

Thanks for responding.

Sadly Debra these are faux stamps that I made and had mailed from Hong Kong and do not represent a modification of Government positions. The umbrellas seem quaint when arrayed against the formidable offensive might of the CCP. What is happening there is a crime. And the stamps have become a collectors' item already, yes!

Wow.  That's amazing that HK issued yellow umbrella postage stamps at all!  I am surprised to see these.

Must be a collectors' item already.  Thanks for posting this Michael.  I was in Central HK a few years ago while that was happening.  It was scary to see the Chinese military presence out in full force.
