Beautiful postally used stamp.
Very rare local letter sent from a member of the military (note the Hom Thu Nr. on the top left of the envelope) in April of 1964 from Ha-Dong to Hanoi. The contents of the letter is preserved and it is a love letter from a boyfriend to a girlfriend. Most local letters were destroyed in the multi-decadal war, the tropical climate or recycling due to raw material shortages so are very hard to find.
Another rare local letter sent in December of 1959 from a member of the military in Nam-Dinh to Ha Nam. Ha-Nam arrival cancel on the reverse. This is a curious specimen as the sender basically used the back of the letter as a postcard. It is not known if there was additional contents of the letter or if just the envelope was used to communicate.
