Postage stamps for Vietnam started after the defeat of Japan in 1945. French postal protocols existed throughout Vietnam until 1954, when two countries were carved from one. After partition, the North and South produced their own stamps. The North celebrated Ho Chi Minh and commemorated the wars of liberation. Many of these North Vietnam stamps were printed in Hanoi, while others were printed behind the iron curtain in Prague, Czechoslovakia and Budapest, Hungary. The stamps here are from the late ’80s – after reunification.
Buu Chinh means postage. And as small as these postage stamps are, they have the power of posters.
