Welcome to the widely read site on the latest news on Malaysian First Day Covers and concordant cancellations!
I started this site to share on my collection of hard to find first day of issue cancellations from Malaysia (including from pre-independence). Thus not all issues are showcased here. I have loaded only selected issues with cancellations that relate to the event. The cancellations match the place of the event (some call this concordant cancellations).
In the early days, it is extremely difficult to obtain cancellations from the location related to the stamp issue. It took me over 20 years to hunt down some of the cancellations. I am still searching. Feel free to go through my gallery. Here are some highlights: Merdeka FDC signed by Tunku Abdul Rahman, ECAFE Conference cancellation, Kuantan Earth Satellite Station cancellation, Penang Free School special cover plus cachet and many more!
If you are also an avid collector of specialised cancellations from Malaysia, I would very much like to get in touch with you.
The items on this site are NOT for sale. They are my private collection.
How much is your FDC worth today?
That’s a tough question. I do not list any prices here as it will depend on the condition of the FDC, the cancellation and how rare is the stamp issue among other things. Drop me a “LEAVE A REPLY” if you want me to take a look at it.
I have also set up a current market guidance in each of the decade. Click on the decade, e.g. 1981 – 1990 to get the market guidance. This guidance is not exhaustive. You can get the FDCs at a much lower cost during a sale or you might need to pay more for really top condition FDCs.
Oh yes, that question: Why “myfdc”?
I chose the name “myfdc” to stand for Malaysia First Day Covers and also My First Day Covers.
Feel free to browse around and share your ideas and insights. I continue to update the website and will also post interesting news as it comes along. Come back every other day for new items or just “Follow”. So stick around!
