A lucky find @ Bangkok 2010

Whilst flipping through a stack of postcards @ Bangkok 2010, this particular one caught my attention, a one and only one lying within the stack of postcards. It was a postcard issued for the world refugee year 1960. depicting the famous Wat Arun of Bangkok. A clever collector affixed the then issued corresponding stamps on the picture side of the postcard and had it cancelled on the first day of issue. It became a nice Maximum Card of the early period of the Thailand. The beautiful thing of this MC , it was only sold @ 2.5 baht (bulk purchase).
