Hi, I have in my collection this 50c stamp. I wasn't able to find anywhere on the internet 'Shanghai China' precancel. Is it common stamp?

Thanks in advance

I'm familiar with the SHANGHAI overprints but I never seen a precancel like that? Quite odd?

It is not a precancel. It is a box postcancel from the US Post office branch in Shanghai. They are not common but not expensive either. There were no Shanghai precancels.

Thank you very much chasa. And now just find someone who wants to by it. It doesn't make sense to keep it in my precancel collection
