Hallo Collectors our topic this day The Vietminh rarest Stamps , this very rare stamps will put in this cybernews site becasue yesterday many collectors click VIETHMINH PHOTOGRAPHY, I think they will happy look this stamps and complete informations especially the native Vietnamese stamps collector.
During my last visit at Ho Chi Minh city, I cann’t found Vietnam recent Stamps Catalogue, the Bookstore tell me no Vietnam catalogue issued, may be the Vietnam Phillateliv society, in Scott catalogue I didn’t found complete information and illustrations.
During my visit at Phomphen Cambodge in 2007 , I found a special Vietnam catalogue TEM BUU CHINH VIETNAM 1945-2005 issued by NHA XUAT BAN BUU DIEN A POST AND TELEMATICS PUBLISHING HOUSE -HANOI 2006 WIT PREAMBLE BY PROF .dr OF Science Do Trung Ta Menister of Posts and Telematics, with Preface by DR Hoang Tho Thai Member of VNPT’s Board of Management Chairman of Vietnam Philately Association. Also in this special Catalogue , we can read A Few Words aboutvHistory of Vienam Postage Stamps. This special catalogue became difficult to found in Vietnam because limited issued.
