The 1977 Definitive Series
----------

1976-1980







bild

The new currency (100 centimes = 1 New Hebrides Franc) required new definitives, the 1972 definitives were overprinted. At left the Paris overprint, at right the Port Vila overprint. The 50FNH and 100FNH have no SG number as they were available from the Philatelic Bureau only. First day from July 1977 to January 1978.

This is a very difficult issue. Not so much the normal Paris - but the Vila overprint. There are many differences within the Vila ovpts so I suggest that you click a Paris AND a Vila overprint for blow-up and place them side by side with the mouse to compare them. You can find many differences within the two ovpts. The SG tells a bit about the ovpt differences, the Yvert even less. (Roland Klinger)
