A great first day cover from Chunghwa Post, Taiwan, featuring the “Herbs” issue. The stamps are simple, but beautifully illustrated. The last stamp includes selvedge, showing the printer’s colour bar. Colour bars usually appear on a sheet of stamps as dots, or something simple, but here they are printed using the outline of the herb illustration. With commemorative cancels.
The cancellations show the year in the Minguo calendar: 102. The Minguo calendar started in 1912 (Gregorian). For details, check Wikipedia.
