The 1953 Coronation Issue Postal History
--------

1949-1965

These "normal" covers mostly are actually FDCs too. It seems to be rather difficult to find covers with dates other than 2 June 1953. The stamp was supposedly not much used in the mostly Francophonic New Hebrides. It can be found today unused like sand on a beach.

But here are three covers with coronation stamps on cover NOT cancelled on June 2, 1953.
One is a real one of a kind: it has a Vila FRENCH cancel! All thanks to "SeSi" and Clemes Albert.
