To Germany with interesting Boxer Uprising propaganda caricature illustration on reverse. Superb fresh condition. Major rarity of Russian POs in China as only several commercial covers with the 'PEKIN' provisional cancel are recorded (nowadays worth something like $100,000+ per cover!), so even a philatelic usage such as this is great item for the specialist. 2013 Ceremuga photo cert.
