National Liberation Front, 1st Anniversary of the Liberation of South Vietnam , May 1st, 1976, Michel Nr. NLF 64; A single stamp with a nominal of 30D (in the South Vietnamese currency) was issued in perforation 11.0. The stamp was produced by the Tien Bo Printing House in sheets of 100 stamps each.

Here is the cancelled to order stamp.

Single franking of the 30D value sent from Lien Hoa (M.N. cancel) to Ho Chi Minh City on September 1st, 1975(?)-no year insert (full content preserved).

Rare multiple franking of the 30D value on a letter sent from Dalat to Ho Chi Minh City on July 29th, 1976. Note that Dalat was still using the cancel from the old regime (without M.N. insert) long after the end of the war.

Another rare multiple ranking of the 30xu value paying the second weight level domestic letter rate on a letter sent from Song Be (small post office) to Ho Chi Minh City in June of 1976

Interesting mixed currency franking between the NLF Dong and the North Vietnamese Dong. The two 300D NLF stamps, the 10 and 30D NLF stamp were devalued by 500:1 in April of 1976 so were only worth 1.28 new Dong at the time of mailing. Together with the NLF stamp in new Dong the overall postage hence amounted to 1.40 new Dong on this letter (full contents preserved) sent to France.

Registration Nr. 200020
