SEDANG

 

Sedang (Xedang) was a nominal monarchy 1888-90 and stamp-issuing entity. The Xơ Đăng people had their capital at Kon Gung (Pelei Agna) 14n33 108e02 in Kon Tum province of the Annam Highlands. Stamps are cancelled DEH SEDANG/1889/PELEI AGNA. There were two printings. Widely considered as bogus, some postal use is discussed here but the evidence is not very convincing: http://www.vietstamp.net/vn/chuyen-de/binh-luan-khao-cuu/tem-sedang-18881889-phan-2/
