ALL STAMPS NH VF White Pristine quality. If you need the 5 booklets printed by South Vietnam Post in Pristine quality in order to be absolutely complete I can supply them. Don't hesitate to contact me. Stamps from South Vietnam suffered from conditions called colonial or tropical gum, the high humidity and hot climate accelerated fungal growth that caused discoloration of the gum side (from light brown to dark brown) and toning, discoloration of the paper. These conditions were most prevalent in the stamps issued in the 1950s and early 1960s such as the Bo i, Bo Long, the Refugee, and even the cheaper first Due sets.
See for ex the Bo Long which is almost always brown, white condition is rare and undervalued in my opinion. For the history a pack of 45000 sets appeared in the 80s from Vietnam, all brown, and they are today everywhere.
The white condition sets come only from the quantity left in Paris at that time for supplying new issue service subscribers.... ASK to see the back of Bo Long from other sellers to make comparison! Obtaining a full collection of South Vietnam stamps is not difficult, however, obtaining a full collection of South Vietnam stamps without tropical gums, toning conditions is exceedingly difficult. Obtaining a full collection in pristine, "fresh off the press", all in unity white gum condition is a chance of a lifetime.
These stamps went directly from the printer to dealers vault without ever been in Vietnam. The stamps are ridiculously fresh and crisp as if they were printed yesterday. As a stamp dealer for many decades. Vietnam is an emergence force of new wealth, quality stamps are scarce now and they will be almost impossible to obtain in the future just because there isn't many of them left. Quality goods will increase in values, inferior damaged goods will not.Make your complete collection not just a lyric of past time but also an investment that pays dividend handsomely. I have only limited collections to offer, once they are gone, there is no more. There probably wont be a second opportunity for such beautiful quality. See scans with samples of gum please, no word can replace a picture. Ask for more if needed..
