Fake Safe Conduct Passes Printed to Bilk Collectors A fake 5-flag Safe Conduct Pass printed in black and white This 5-flag pass was offered for sale in with a number of items that seem to be genuine.
However, we know this pass was printed in color and in general the color covers the entire front. Here we see that the image seems to be printed on a piece of white paper with a border all around.
It is very suspicious and the seller admitted: I don't know if anything is original Because these Flag Safe Conduct passes are colorful, common and popular among collectors, various forgeries exist.
Above are three blatantly poor facsimiles of the 7-flag safe conduct pass Thieu signature and photographprinted in pink, red-orange and in green, produced to bilk unknowledgeable collectors.
The flag safe conduct passes were so successful that reproductions of parts or all of the 5-flag and 7-flag safe conduct passes are found on other propaganda leaflets. These show entire fronts or backs or partial vignettes from the fronts or backs. The reproductions are usually reduced in size.
The "Trail" campaign was directed against the military and civilian personnel who use and maintain the Ho Chi Minh Trail. This series of roads and trails twisted for thousands of miles in and around Vietnam and was the main supply route for the VC and NVA.
The Allies routinely dropped leaflets all coded with a "T" over the trail in an attempt to destroy the morale of the enemy. Some of these leaflets show the front or back of various flag safe conduct leaflets.
Leaflet T Leaflet T depicts a mm cannon on the front. The back depicts the front of the 5-flag safe conduct pass at right, and text at the left: This gun has not been aimed at you yet. If it had been aimed at you, you would not be reading these lines.
This is a millimeter cannon. It shoots a 75 kilogram round more than 30 kilometers and is able to destroy everything in the target area. You are indeed fortunate to escape this terrible fate by finding this safe conduct pass which points the way for you to come across and live under the protection of the government of the Republic of Vietnam.
Leaflet T Leaflet T depicts captured weapons on one side. The back is all text with the 5-flag safe conduct pass. Your comrades were carrying them a few days ago. But that was before they arrived in South Vietnam and encountered the powerful opposition of the law-abiding South Vietnamese people.
Your chance to avoid the fate they met will come. Look for your safe conduct pass. It will have this symbol. Leaflet T The front of the leaflet depicts a B dropping bombs. Curiously, this leaflet appears in at least three different forms. One variety is in a horizontal format and depicts a B bomber flying toward the left and dropping bombs.
This version is in orange ink on white paper and depicts the 5-flag safe conduct pass. The second variety is in a vertical format and depicts the B flying toward the right and dropping bombs.
This version is printed on green paper and also depicts the five-flag safe conduct pass. The third variety is in a vertical format and depicts a B bomber flying toward the right and dropping bombs.
This version depicts the seven-flag safe conduct pass.
All three varieties have the same text: You probably won't hear it. It flies too high.
It is a B bomber, used by the South Vietnamese people's powerful American allies to blast aggressors out of their hiding places. One B carries 29, kilos of bombs and can drop them with pin-point accuracy, dealing certain death to everyone within the target area.
The B can strike you at any time during all seasons and weather conditions. Your chance to avoid this fate will come.The stereotypes are wrong. Let's look at the facts, starting with who actually served in Vietnam.
