The photo of the following link has some covers and chop. Is that official cover and CTO?
Thanks for the information! The empty covers on the picture were sold by a dealer outside the Philatelic Bureau HQ in Dayabumi, Kuala Lumpur. There were a lot in Kuala Lumpur and also seen in Kedah and Perak.
There were some collectors who printed their own cover designs.
Pos Malaysia did not issue any official envelope.
The cancellation is a normal circular cancellation. No special cancellation was released.
I see. Thanks for the clarification
Hi there, may I know where I can find Tun’s fdc?
The 93rd Birthday of Tun Dr Mahathir was issued as a mint set of 3 Setemku sheetlets in a folder. No official First Day Covers were issued. An avid supporter of Tun printed boxes of envelopes and distributed in Ipoh General Post Office before the issue date. The same envelopes were sold in Kuala Lumpur General Post Office on the day of issue of Tun’s folder set.
Thus all the FDCs are privately made. I chose to paste the full sheet into the Pos Malaysia Setemku envelope to create full sheet First Day Covers and postmark in Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya on the day of issue.
Thank you for reading 222.myfdc.wordpress.com .
Thank you so much! Just as your opinion, the privately made FDC worth of collecting it?
I think the private FDCs appeal to thematic collectors. These are not listed in any catalogue. However these are rarer and usually pricey
