Looking for more information, Hong Kong Stamps cancelled in Shanghai? I was sorting through a group of old Hong Kong stamps and noticed some with what appeared to be Shanghai cancels.
Thanks

These are Hong Kong treaty port usage, not sure Scott lists them anywhere but the SG Hong Kong catalogue does. Ningpo's avatar shows another one.

EDIT. This site may give you more information. http://www.rjbw.net/hktp.html

Your 10-cent red Queen Victoria stamp has an IPO tie-print. This Hong Kong stamp and a China stamp were used in combination to get a letter out of China to another country, as China was not yet a member of the UPU in 1899. This stamp, on its original cover, would be quite valuable today.

For more info and a better explanation, as well as a chart of IPO tie-prints:

Hope this helps you,
