Officially, Taiwan is a province of the People's Republic of China.
Many Taiwanese people consider themselves however as being citizens of the 'independent' island of Taiwan, or the so called Republic of China.

And this truly is a beautiful stamp/sheet!
Most stamps/sheets printed on silk are already an example of exquisit printing.
Here, the stamp is superb.

If any Taiwanese reader of my blog, is willing to send me a postally used copy of this sheet, I'd be very happy.
