Can old stamps from before Euro / 2002 in currency France frank be used on postcards mailed out in France?

I received a card with a stamp from 1978 of 1,00 france frank on it (and another stamp of 50 eurocents).

Do you know if there is information about this on the official PosteFrance website?

Yes you can use stamps with value in francs, they are still valid.

That is wonderfull!

Sadly the value converted to euro is only 15 cent. With a 50 eurocent stamp this postcrosser cheated 65 cent.

It's a not register item, but reporting.

I have received mail recently that had stamps in Old Francs, prior to 1960. It's frustrating when people try to cheat the system. These pieces I received were not through Postcrossing, otherwise I would have reported it.

Old Franc-Stamps are still valid. Even the very first stamp of France would be valid. Only the value is very small. They made 100 old francs = 1 new franc. Only some stamps, which were issued during german occupation are no longer valid.

Yeah, the most recent example of what I received was a letter with a "Lettre Verte" stamp and two stamps totally 5 Old Francs. Definitely a purposeful underpayment.

Hello together.

Does La Poste allow combining stamps of different value to reach the required value of 1,30 EUR for international mail (e.g. 1,00 + 0,10 + 0,10 + 0,10)?
Or do I absolutely have to use a single international stamp?
