South Vietnam; Prepared but not issued Stamps, 1975, Michel Nr. SVN V-XX; Anyone who has ever been involved in preparing a stamp issue knows that the various processes within the postal administration and the printing works can require months of preparation before a stamp that was planed can finally be released. South Vietnam struggled mightily with inflation which required a frequent increase in postal rates and hence stamp nominals. The postal administration had already sent eight new issues in updated nominals to the printers when the country was taken over by the Viet Cong. As result these stamps were not officially issued any longer but remained in the archives of the postal administration. From there they were later sold by the new administration in mint condition into the philatelic market. No cancelled specimens or postal history exists of these stamps.
