Complete Letter Set 僑批三件套 - 僑批、回批、票根

Every remittance made by an emigrant through a letter/remittance agency is tracked by a trail of paper. This begins when the sender is issued a serial-numbered receipt by the letter/remittance agency overseas that accepts his remittance and letter. The same serial number is attached to the letter and a blank return letter, which is filled in by the family to confirm receipt of the fund. The cycle is completed when the sender is finally given the return letter.A complete set of letter, receipt and return letter has rarely been acquired by collectors since this requires not only for the family to retain the letter, but also the sender to keep and bring home the receipt and return letter when he eventually decides to return.

 

批局寄批一般收到寄批者的銀信後,會給寄批者開一收據(俗稱"票根")。同時批局付有一件跟票根、批信列同一字型大小的空白回批,讓收批人回復,證明銀信已被家人收妥。收齊列同字型大小的票根、回批跟批信必需寄批人回家鄉時把收據(票根)和故鄉返寄的回批一併帶回,才有可能。因此三件列同字型大小的批信、回批、票根較為稀少。
