1960 Anti-TB Semi-postal Stamp

Only one stamp was issued for the 1960 Anti-TB semi-postal fund raising campaign. On August 19, 1960, the Bureau of Posts released an overprinted and surcharged version of the  low value 1958 Anti-TB stamp featuring a vignette of Manuel Quezon and the Quezon Institute.

The 1958 5 + 5c semi-postal stamp was overprinted "HELP PREVENT T.B."  and surcharged " 6+5".
