The DYMM Seri Paduka Baginda Yang di-Pertuan Agong Series 3 special sheetlet in vertical format was initially printed for the 2017 Annual Album. https://myfdc.me/2018/10/03/soda-additional-order-form-for-annual-album-and-ets-overprint-setenant-sheet/
Today, Pos Malaysia is making the sheetlet available for Standing Order Deposit Account (SODA) members via an Order Form. Download and print the following image and fax or email to Pos Malaysia.
The closing date is 11 March 2019 and this is sufficient time to send in the order.
The Series 3 sheetlet was originally issued in a horizontal format on 11 September 2017 at RM 37.10 with GST. It was a very hot item and the sheetlets sold in a folder with an envelope were sold out by 10:10 am. The hardest to find are the First Day Covers as not many were made due to the high cost.
Thus this time it is an affordable RM 19.00.

Share your thoughts with us as we await (hopefully) Series 4?
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’s Yang Di-Pertuan Agong Special Sheetlet Series 3 Folder set saw strong demand from the moment the doors were opened. The first round of buyers numbered 48 persons. The queue actually started building before 06:00 am.
The notice on the glass door informed us that there will be a limit of 3 per person.
Most State GPOs limit the sale to only 1 folder per person.
Also on offer were the Orchids setenant, YDPA Series 2 and the SEA Games setenant. It was rather a surprise that the SEA Games setenant came out so quickly.
As the morning progressed, news of the folder being sold out in Penang, Negeri Sembilan and Johor came in. This triggered additional buying by those in Kuala Lumpur. It was not long that at about 10:10 am all folders were sold out.
The designer, Mr Shahrul Izhar, from World Comms came to autograph the folders. The autograph queue was long but moving.
Overall, this issue received extremely good response. The envelope that came with the folder is very handy to make a FDC.
However in the afternoon, news trickled in that the Sultan of Kedah, Sultan Abdul Halim Mu’adzam Shah had passed away. It is indeed a sad news to end the day.
The next issue will be the special edition of the Seri Paduka Yang Di-Pertuan Agong Series 3 sheetlet. It will be sold on 11 September 2017 in a folder with an accompanying envelope as a set for RM 35.00 before GST.
The issue will be on sale in the state Philatelic Bureau (14 state GPOs).
