Hmmm, been waiting for the Electric Train Service for a long time?
Remember the order form in October 2018 for the ETS Overprint Setenant Strip Sheet? Apparently a lot of SODA customers were chasing and finally it was ready yesterday’s late evening.
The album looks nice and solid. The target is the vertical DYMM YDPA XV sheetlet. Included in the order is the ETS Overprint.
Look carefully at the overprint logo.
Ok, did you miss it? Here is a chance, as part of the 7th Anniversary of myfdc, here is the sheetlet at RM 1 above face value!
Do not contact me if you miss this round. You can try the other dealers.
Today Pos Malaysia will release the following Setenant Strips Sheets:
- Musical Instruments Series 2 (I think Pos Malaysia made an error on the price shown in the poster)
- Medicinal Plants Series 4
- ETS (NOT the Overprint ETS stamps setenant that was opened for SODA, this is the original ETS)
I have spares for sale in full sheets. Contact me at: email@example.com
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.
