Attempt on the King in Montpellier

Great worry in Montpellier, this 5th December 1989 :

This King Francis I - who signed the ordinance of Villers-Côterets in 1539 (450 years before this commemorative stamp) - survived an attempt on its integrity, made with the tumultuous black ink of a pictorial cancellation for the centenary of Montpellier's Institut de Botanique (created by Charles Flahaut).
