Indochina, Construction of Student Housing in the University of Hanoi (overprinted with new values), Michel Nr. IND 332-333; Since postage for a 10g letter kept going up the 6C stamps were overprinted with a new 10C nominal but the surcharge of 2C was left unchanged. Like all stamps with surcharges these stamps were not very popular with the general public. As a result postally used specimen or postal history featuring these stamps are rare. The two stamps were issued as follows:

10C = June 10th, 1944 (multicolored stamp)

10C = March 15th, 1944 (unicolored stamp)

Here is the mint set in blocks of four.

and here the cancelled to order set in blocks of four.

Postally used set.

Stamps featuring First Day Cancels.

Rare single franking of the 10C overprinted stamp on a domestic letter sent from Hanoi to Saigon in September of 1944. Saigon machine arrival cancel on the reverse. The letter was collected by Jacques Dessrousseaux, the well known French philatelist as the letter was addressed to his wife. Ex Dessrousseaux.
