Memorial Stamps for the Nineteenth National Congress of the Communist Party of China
China with the largest population ranks the top in the number of collectors too.
Many people make a decent living just on collecting and selling antiques, jewelries, coins, and stamps.
A special type of stamps has been designed catering to the 19th National Congress of the communist Party of China, making it quite a collectible item for stamp collectors allover China.
People lined up outside post offices for as long as twenty hours just to be able to get their hands on a set. There is no other way around it as only a limit amount of these stamps was produced.
For example, in Wenzhou in Zhejiang province, only 1200 sets of stamps are up for sale.
A set consists of two stamps along with a mini stamp for 8.4RMB, limited 2 sets per person.
