Multiple franking of the 15C value (2) paying an overall postage of 30C on an international air mail letter sent from Hanoi to a military commander in Secteur Postal ISI.

The letter was processed through BPM 121 as indicated by the black bar cachet on front. Saigon transit cancel from January of 1940.
