Single franking of the 6C value on a domestic letter sent from Cana to the well known philatelist Jacques Dessrouseaux in March of 1943. his was during the Japanese Occupation and it appears that it was censored as it carries a circular “Hanoi R.P.Bis” cancel on the reverse. Nha Trang transit and Hanoi arrival cancel on the reverse. Given that this stamp carried a surcharge it was not used a lot by the public and so postally used samples are rare.

Single franking of the 15C value on a domestic letter sent to himself by the well known philatelist Jacques Dessrouseaux within Hanoi. This was during the Japanese Occupation and it appears that it was censored as it carries a circular “Hanoi R.P.Bis” cancel on the reverse.
