#526 Cover and Stamps from Malaysia
A cover from Malaysia, sent by Ian Choong.
Ian used two stamps on the cover. The right stamp is about Dragon Boat Race, and the left stamp is issued in conjunction of the royal visit by Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to Malaysia!! Unfortunately, the stamps were stained with heavy cancels by Pos Malaysia!!!
The postmark date is 2 November 2012 and the location is National Mail Center.
Inside, Ian sent me two stamps issued by Pos Malaysia to commemorate the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II! The first one is a stamp in stamp that features an old stamp isssued by the State of Selangor in Malaya when the Queen was coronated on 2 June 1953, and the second stamp is the same stamp that Ian used on the cover – the royal visit by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to Malaysia in 2012.
Another surprise from Ian – the souvenir sheet issued by Pos Malaysia to commemorate the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II! The souvenir sheet contains both of the stamps above, and it features the new Istana Negara (or National Palace) for the Yang di-Pertuan Agong of Malaysia (King of Malaysia) in Kuala Lumpur. Thank you very much Ian for all these!
