Registered letter sent from Nguyen Rai to Klewitz. The letter shows different varieties of the red HCM stamp. The top stamp shows the plate error of “blind right eye” and the bottom stamp significant passer-shifts. Many Total Liberation stamps on front and back. The overall postage amounted to 8.2 Dong (including the red free frank for 4.7 Dong). Green Fulda custom cachet on front.

Very large registered envelope that features the entire perforated Soccer set. There are also a pair of the 1974 Flower series im-perforated and the rarer Post Master Perforation (15) of the 12 xu Lotus stamp. Im-perfroated stamps and Post Master Perforations on postally used cover are very rare. On front there is pair of the 1976 military free frank in both color variations the stamp is known. Military free franks were not valid for international postage due to their lacking nominal value, however it appears that the postal clerk was not familiar with that rule. The overall postage amounted to 23.13 Dong (including the red free frank for 9 Dong). Green Fulda custom cachet on front.
