The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge might be making a comeback to the now famous Prince William & Kate Royal Visit Miniature Sheet! Which Miniature Sheet? Remember the one that had the mis-reporting of “x” or “z” in “Elizabeth”? Assignment: Read up the archive postings (link on the right side).
EXCEPT, this time it will be an overprint planned for the Thailand 2013 World Stamp Exhibition in Bangkok! Since this is in the final stages, let’s hope that it really does come out! If the plan goes through, the Overprint MS will be on sale in Bangkok on 02 August 2013. Again, always keep in mind that in Pos Malaysia, things keep changing… so no need to get excited yet.
Hmm, strictly speaking it is not an overprint as the original print run has been sold out. So technically it is an overprint on a reprint?
I think it is a fabulous idea as the royal couple is expecting the royal baby this July! A very good way to celebrate as well!
The issues thus far this year has been rather cold. Perhaps this overprint will thaw the ice and create some excitement.
I will load images if this issue materialize. Otherwise it is an interesting footnote in Malaysian Philatelic History.
What do you think?
