French Papeete

This nice XF note from 1963 just arrived, certainly has a totally Gallic theme.  No consideration of the Papeete landscape, fauna, etc.  That's certainly changed in the current issues.

It's from Yuri 111, alright, no doubt about it.  His XF is conservative, just a few wrinkles, seems XF-AU to me.  Not one fold except for a corner bend.
