Here is the partial used set.

Multiple franking of the 4/5C stamps (4) paying an overall postage of 3.2C on a domestic letter sent from Phu-Qui to Can Tho in August of 1932. The stamps were canceled with the rare “Poste Rurale, Coba” rural cancel. The letter was underpaid and so a triangular postage due cachet stating “5 Taxe Minimum” was struck on front and three postage due stamps amounting to 5C were attached to the front upon delivery. Vinh and Saigon transit cancels on the reverse.

 

Multiple franking of the 4/5C stamps (2) in shape of a gutter-pair together with the 1/2C Domestic Scences II stamp paying an overall postage of 2.1C on a domestic letter sent from Phu-Qui to Can Tho in August of 1932. The stamps were canceled with the rare “Poste Rurale, Coba” rural cancel. The letter was underpaid and so a black “T” postage due cachet in a triangle was struck on front indicating that additional postage was due upon delivery. Two 3C postage due stamps were added in Can Tho also in shape of a gutter pair and cancelled with the a red “T” hand stamp that was also struck on the envelope. Vinh and Saigon transit cancels as well as another strike of the rural Coba cancel on the reverse.

International letter sent from Karaikudi, India to Saigon in May of 1911. The letter was posted without stamps and as a result a “T” in a circle was applied on front. This indicates that postage was due upon delivery. Upon arrival in Saigon 10C and 40C postage due stamps were added to the envelope charging the postage due plus 100% penalty.
