This year Malaysians will celebrate the 56th year of independence. Of peculiar interest are the various stamp issues related or in some cases not even remotely related to independence issued by Pos Malaysia. Have a read from an updated article from last year: https://myfdc.wordpress.com/2012/08/30/happy-national-day-selamat-menyambut-hari-kebangsaan/
Meanwhile here are the photos of the private covers issued to commemorate the Independence Day (Merdeka Day) on 31 August 1957. The frames were prepared by Chang Cher An.
Updated 28 August 2013: Merdeka Sales
I have a number of items listed at below current catalogue prices for Merdeka Sales. To throw in an extra bonus, any purchase above RM 200 will be free registered postage. For existing customer, every RM 100 will be free registered postage. Flat rate registered shipping charge for items below those values (RM 3.50 flat for any number of FDCs and RM 3.00 flat for any a number of stamps or miniature sheets).
