Infamy, Repoeblic Indonesia, 1949

To focus world attention on the Dutch police actions in 1948, a number of post-war Netherlands Indies stamps were overprinted with:

Repoeblic Indonesia, Two Days Of Infamy, 7 Dec. 1941 - Pearl Harbor, 18 Dec. 1948, - Jogjakarta.

There are three types of overprints depending on the size of the stamps. There are also two overprints for airmail stamps. The order for the overprint was placed with J. & H. Stolow & Co. The stamps are only known with philatelic cancellations.
