Another very nice China stamp issue. Last year, both China and India issued stamps for the Beijing Olympic Games on the very special day of 08-08-08. This year, both China and India issued stamps on the special day of 09-09-09. On the FDC above, you can see how China Post present on their postmark the special date 09-09-09. On the datestamp, it reads "2009.09.09". On the special cancellation, it reads "2009.9.9"
