This FDC was cancelled in Bintulu and is very scarce. I will put the scarcity even higher than the Earth Satellite Station.

This FDC was cancelled in Kuching.

This FDC was cancelled in Kuantan. The DYMM Yang Dipertuan Agong is from Pahang. The colour printing on the envelope is also badly aligned.

  1. How rare is the 1983 Hari Komanwel fdc by the issue from The history & heritage of the commonwealth? Seems unable to find one in ebay. Thank you.

    1. Hi! It is a private issue and sold in a full set of all Commonwealth participating countries.

      Thus it is hard to come by loose FDC e.g. just Malaysia.

      It is not rare but not commonly seen.
