France 1940 - Dunkirk 1940 - Michel 20 I

Description
France 1940 - Dunkirk 1940 - Michel 20 I
Postal used

According to the expertise by Herbst BPP: the vertical postage stamp "Iris" has a type I overprint. The cancellation "Dunkerque 4-7-40" and the arrival cancellation "Malo des Bains 5-7-40" on the back are also genuine and cleanly cancelled. The letter is overfranked by 1 Fr. Such stamp pairs are rare due to the small number issued and because only a very small number of the stamps remain. The cancellation "Malo les Bains" is rare. The upper stamp has a short tooth and a damaged tooth at the top. The letter is folded vertically. Signature Tust BPP
