21 October 1966: Penang Free School Sesquicentenary
Sesquicentenary means 150 years! Here are the covers issued by Penang Free School (very limited edition) and sent via normal mail from the school (“Posted at Penang Free School”) making this rare. I do know that the Board of Archives of Penang Free School has a set as well. Hopefully it is kept properly.
This is another version of the Penang Free School cover with the Sesquicentenary stickers sent via normal mail at the school (“Posted at Penang Free School”).
The Sesquicentenary stickers can be found in various colour: light blue, dark grey, orange, brown and magenta.
This is the official cover sent via normal mail. Note the cancellation “Posted at Penang Free School”.
This FDC was cancelled in Singapore and sent via air mail.
01 December 1966: First Malaysia Plan
This FDC was cancelled in Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman Kuala Lumpur. Till this day, the road’s name is usually mistaken as Jalan Tunku Abdul Rahman and thus it attracts a lot of collectors who would come to the post office to match any issue with Tunku’s stamps or image! Sometimes the road is just called Jalan TAR adding to the confusion. Tuanku Abdul Rahman is the first Yang Di-Pertuan Agong of Malaya whereas Tunku Abdul Rahman is the first Prime Minister of Malaya.
The FDC was cancelled in Singapore and sent via registered mail. This FDC is special as it is officially the last commemorative stamp issue to be allowed to be cancelled in Singapore. The cross usage of stamps ended on 31 January 1967 and this issue is the last issue before the date.
