28 November 2018: ETS MS Overprint for Thailand World Stamp Exhibition 2018

28 November 2018: ETS MS Overprint for Thailand World Stamp Exhibition 2018

Pos Malaysia will be represented by Philatelic Society of Malaysia (PSM) for the World Stamp Exhibiton in Bangkok, Thailand. The event is held in Royal Paragon Hall 1 – 3 in downtown Bangkok. It runs from 28 November 2018 until 03 December 2018. Thailand Post is providing an exhibition cachet and daily cancellations. These are the current image available and subjected to changes.

Pos Malaysia is expected to have the exhibition cachet to complement the Exhibition Overprint MS of the ETS issue.

PSM will be selling their own envelope. There is also a proposal to pre-sell the envelope during the Stamp Week 2018. Why not drop by and have a look during Stamp Week at the PSM booth?

Here is the image with the consent to share by PSM (copyright holder of the envelope design).

The overprint MS is also expected to be on sale by the International House of Stamps in the exhibition hall.

While Pos Malaysia has not provided information on the order forms for SODA, it has been a trend that Pos Malaysia offers the overprints AFTER the exhibitions.

Updated 12 November 2018:

Philatelic Society of Malaysia was selling the blank envelopes at RM 2.00 each at the Stamp Week 2018 in their counter in the Kuala Lumpur General Post Office.
