- Hi everybody, I've just purchased a 5 dong 1955 second issue with the wrong spelling of the title "Thu-Quy" (without the tilde ~ over the "Y"). I looked for it on internet for long time and I knew that almost nobody knows this variety so I could get it at a low price.
Does anybody know the history behind this variety? Is it coming from a wrong plate or the titles are overprinted? If a wrong plate, why did they use it continuosly? (my note has prefix G1 but I saw with L letter too so it looks to be a long life issue..)
I would appreciate any kind of information about this variety.
Thanks to anybody.
