31 August 1973: 10 Years of Malaysia

The FDC was cancelled in Kuala Lumpur. Technically the correct date should be 16 September 1973 as Malaysia was formed on 16 September 1963.

    1. Is there any special cancellation on both covers? So far I am unable to find special cancels. The cancels that I know off are the GPO and regular post office first day cancels. If you have special cancels, I would love to load it with your permission.

      I currently feature only concordant cancels (i.e. the cancellation matches the topic or if there is a special cancel).


      1. 🙂 Some call it postmark. I feel postmark should be reserved for the postal marks rather than the cancels on the FDCs. Locally we call it “chop”!
