Thailand Airmail
December 27, 1953

Unfortunately, all I have of this cover is this scan of the back where the stamps were.
It appears to have been posted in Bangkok where it received a machine cancel with a slogan.

The cover was franked with a 50s olive from the 1947-49 series (Scott 267),
a 25s carmine from the 1950 series (Scott 286),
and a 2 baht darkblue 1952 airmail (Scott C21).

We can only imagine the destination of the cover.

There is indecipherable evidence of a receiving mark.
