Another beautiful cover from Vietnam. The stamps on the upper left which depict what seems to be a rally with people holding up the Vietnamese flag probably commemmorate Vietnamese independence from France on 2 Sep 1945. The stamps were issued in 2006.
The yellow stamp with the horse celebrates Tết, the Vietnamese new year, which is based on the lunar calendar. This stamp was issued in 2002.
The blue stamp on the extreme right has an inscription in Vietnamese, so I cannot really tell what it celebrates, but it evidently is celebrating the 50th anniversary of something that happened on 10 Oct 1954. This stamp was, of course, issued in 2004.
The brown stamp under the Independence stamps probably pays homage to an important scribe or writer who lived (or maybe wrote?) from 1870-1907. This stamp was issued in 2007, porabably celebrating 100 years of whatever it is that is being celebrated.
The last stamp on the bottom shows a cock fight, which is also very common among the masses here in the Philippines. Perhaps it is also a favorite pastime of many Vietnamese? This stamp was issued in 2000.
The cover was sent from Tan Son Nhat, in Ho Chi Minh City, the capital, on 05 March 2008.
There was also a very nice meter franking on the reverse to pay for due postage. The clarity of the marking makes it absolutely exquisite. The purple franking on the left is a backstamp applied at the Central Post Office of Quezon City, Philippines.
