100 Years of the New Hebrides   1892 - 1992

2.  Provisional Condominium Overprints


2.5.  Second French Condominium Overprints


2.5  Second French Condominium Overprints

The first French overprints of 1908 lacked the word Condominium and the British kicked up a fuss, so in 1910 they were additionally overprinted with the word Condominium.

Varieties of these typeset overprints exist (extra spacer type or missing spacer type), and I enjoy looking for them at stamp shows. I picked this 10c stamp up at the PIPEX 2014 show. It has an extra space between the U and the M. Here is the same variety on a block of 4 of the 50c (top right stamp).
