"CAMBODGE. - 545. - PNOM-PENH. - Quai Norodom" postcard with pertinent annotation on front 'Your boat anchors at x, a tug brings you to xx & you climb over the boats & these steps - at low water now'; mailed 23 2 23 at Pnom-Penh with a strip of 3 stamps that are even more interesting: Originally these were 5-c stamps of French Indo-China. Then they were overprinted with new 2-c values for use at the French Indo-Chinese Office in Hoi-Hao, Southern China, as indicated by the French & Chinese characters in red. That Office closed on 31 December 1922, as did other French Indo-Chinese Offices in China. The remainder stamps were brought back to French Indo-Chinese post offices such as the one in Pnom-Penh (now Cambodia), and used up in the following months such as we see here. This postcard was addressed to Columbus Ohio. It was originally thought that postage was due, but the value at the time of receipt was not obvious -- 2-centimes or 5-centimes each? The triangular postage due marking at the upper left of the back was struck off by pencil, indicating no postage due assessment, probably by a clerk who was tired of trying to figure it out or argue about it. There are two creases in the least important corner, not affecting anything philatelic, not into the image nor into the explanatory text written on front; but we mention them for accuracy. $200.00 c-ccf
