  1. Hi.. im new to this philatelic hobby. Few years ago i collect stamps for fun. After so long i want to start all over again. I don’t really understand about pictorial cancellation. I just bought today’s issuance. Fdc plus the stamps and mini sheets. How do i get the chop. And does every issuance has a pictorial stamps? Us there any charges on the cancellation?

    1. Each issue will have a pictorial cancellation at the Philatelic Bureau branches. Other post offices only have the normal datestamp.

      The cancellation is free. In GPO KL, the Bureau staff will help to cancel for you.

      The old timer collectors can also help. They are all very friendly.

      Hope this helps.


      1. Thanks Sky52200,

        I find it difficult in getting informations on philately sinc I am a total beginner. I guess younger generations has much less interested in it.

        Great posts in here you have.
