Rare multiple franking of the stamp representing the second weight level on a local letter from Than Hoa to HCM City.

Unusual use of the military free frank on a mixed franking of three of the stamps together with the 50 xu value World Food Day. Given that the domestic letter rate for 20g at the time was 50 xu the overall franking equivalent computes to 2D, which represents the fourth weight level. The editor has never seen another similar use. The letter was sent from Hanoi to HCM City in February of 1983.
