Yup, as we celebrate Labour Day, Penny Black celebrates the 175th anniversary! The 175th Anniversary of Penny Black also set a record of sorts by edging out the Obama Visit PSE. Here are the new top 5 page views in a day:
1. Preparing for World Youth Stamp Exhibition and Friday’s day report (766)
2. Malaysia – China 40 Years of Diplomatic Relations Pre-Stamped Envelope (724)
3. 175th Anniversary of Penny Black (665)
4. Obama Visit to Malaysia Pre-Stamped Envelope (500 odd)
5. William and Kate FDC (400 odd)
However in terms of the length of the queue it is still in this order:
1. William and Kate FDC
2. Malaysia – China 40 Years of Diplomatic Relations
3. Obama Visit to Malaysia
In terms of interest: Only William and Kate this continued to be widely searched until today!!!
I think collectors and dealers were trying to find out about the event in Melaka! What do you think?
