PRC 169

     The People’s Republic of China issued a four stamp set in 1952 to mark the Peace Conference of the Asian and Pacific Regions. One of the stamps has a design that includes a globe and two doves. The globe is an oblique orthographic projection showing Asia, Alaska and the west coast of the Americas at about 45°.
     There are some errors that reflect bad drawing. Australia is not rotated so it is out of alignment with the rest of the globe. Hawaii is missing, and South America is too far west.
