Updated 09 October 2013: World Postal Day Postcards

Pos Malaysia plans to release a set of 14 postcards on 09 October 2013 in conjunction with the World Postal Day. The images are recycled from the Old Post Offices series issued on 09 October 2010! I will not be making concordant postcards as I am more interested in FDCs.

These postcards will make a nice maximum card if you stick the 2010 set of stamps and get it cancelled on the day of issue at the respective post offices! Now that is a nice challenge.


The original set:



Updated 09 October 2013:

The GPO released each state’s cancellation for those who turned up. Actually hardly anyone turned up to buy the postcards. The postcards were also very glossy thus the ink adhesion was poor. I managed to make maximum cards with the 2010 stamps and also cancelled in the St John’s Stamp Exhibition. Check it out: http://www.ebay.com.my/itm/World-Postal-Day-Malaysia-2013-Postcard-Maximum-Cards-with-15-special-cancels-/360761137902?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_207&hash=item53ff0a1aee

Due to the sheer number of postcards and stamps, this is a very costly set. Anyway, I will stick to FDCs.

  1. It’s a pity the Pos Malaysia www doesn’t give any explanation about the cards, and it’s hard to read the captions on the site!

    1. Hi Lisa,

      Thanks for dropping by the site.

      The postcards were recycled images from the 2010 Old Post Offices stamp issue. Each year during World Post Day (strangely this issue was titled World Postal Day by Pos Malaysia) a philatelic item will be issued.

      Click on the image and when the image load, you can click the image again for the large image. I need to be careful on the size of the images to balance the loading time, size of my available subscription and some readers using my images without acknowledgment for profit.


  2. Actually I meant I can’t read the captions on the Pos Malaysia website ! They haven’t bothered to load clear images!
    I completely understand why you use low res on your site – too many people out there ‘stealing’ images as you mentioned.
