Chinese KMT Blood Chit........Canceled?


Recommended Posts

I have this nice silk blood chit that came in small lot of aviation related items that are period pieces. But I can't find any references to such items that have a canceled stamp as does this one. Any thoughts?

When a chit holder was returning home many times they would allow him to keep his chit. They would stamp it cancelled to show it was no longer a valid chit.

 

Presuming it was issued, shouldn't it have a serial number? Both of mine have a serial number, and all the others I've seen, including modern/recent ones do too.

FWIW, everything else in the lot is legitimate. The serial number is plainly visible, #W 10103. According to some of the reference links I found on a related thread, this is a very low serial number. My guess is that as these were often issued to specific people and that perhaps someone taken off flight status might have had their chits canceled once no longer being authorized, for whatever reason, to serve overseas.
