‘Kiem Soat’ Label 1956

This cover, shown front and back, illustrates the migration to a Vietnameselanguage censor hand stamp.

The large letters “KS” in the center mean Kiem Soat, or censored. A mute numeral (41) was also applied, presumably representing the individual who censored the letter.

Overt evidence of censorship is virtually never seen on South Vietnamese mail after this point outside of mail sent from prisons and Chieu Hoi camps.

Cover from the collection of Richard Aspnes
