Sunday Stamps II A-Z 'V' - Vietnam and ...

At this time of year people have set new resolutions. At the end of 1962 the country of Vietnam had just started its First 5 Year Plan.

Vietnam 31 December 1962

But my favourite Vietnamese stamp is from 1961 - 

Vietnam - Sun Bear
As bears like honey I wonder whether they would like these from a country that used to be Upper Volta.

Burkina Faso - Honey Fungus 8 March 1961

For other views of V cross over to the links at Sunday-Stamps-II-160. where you will begin again in Vietnam.
