Very Rare - Saigon Presidential Palace Guard - Saigon. Brass - Original Badge - Elite President Guard - Large. Measures - 2.4 inches in diameter (6 cms). Ng - President of the Republic of Vietnam (RVN). Presidential Palace - Republic of Vietnam - Saigon (Now Ho Chi Minh City). P), also publicly known as Reunification Convention Hall (Vietnamese: H? T), built on the site of the former Norodom Palace, is a landmark in Ho Chi Minh City (formerly known as Saigon), Vietnam. It was designed by architect Ngô Vi? And was the home and workplace of the President of South Vietnam during the Vietnam War.

During the Fall of Saigon on 30 April 1975, it was the site of the end of the Vietnam War, when a North Vietnamese Army tank crashed through its gates. On 27 February 1962, two pilots of Di? M's Republic of Vietnam Air Force, Nguy? C, rebelled and flew two A-1 Skyraider aircraft towards the palace and bombed it, instead of going on a raid against the Vi?

As a result, almost the entire left wing was destroyed. M and his family escaped the assassination attempt. As it was almost impossible to restore the palace, Di? M ordered it demolished and commissioned a new building in its place.

The new palace was constructed according to a design by Ngô Vi? , a Vietnamese architect who won the First Grand Prize of Rome (Grand Prix de Rome) in 1955, the highest recognition of the Beaux-Arts school in Paris.

He was also a laureate of the Prix de Rome awarded by the French government. The construction of the new Independence Palace started on 1 July 1962.

M did not see the completed hall as he and his brother and chief adviser Ngô Dình Nhu were assassinated after a coup d'état led by General Duong Van Minh in November 1963.

The completed hall was inaugurated on 31 October 1966 by the chairman of the National Leadership Committee, General Nguy? U, who was then the head of a military junta.

The Independence Hall served as Thi? U's home and office from October 1967 to 21 April 1975, when he fled the country as communist North Vietnamese forces swept southwards in the decisive Ho Chi Minh Campaign.

On 8 April 1975, Nguy? N Thanh Trung, a pilot of the South Vietnamese air force and an undetected communist spy, flew an F-5E aircraft from Biên Hòa Air Base to bomb the palace, but caused no significant damage. At 10:45 on 30 April 1975, a tank of the North Vietnamese army bulldozed through the main gate, effectively ending the Vietnam War. In November 1975, after the negotiation convention between the communist North Vietnam and their colleagues in South Vietnam was completed, the Provisional Revolutionary Government renamed the palace Reunification Hall (H?
