125th Anniversary of Postage Stamps in Malaysia

#1 Inside #463: Straits Settlements #1O

The Straits Settlements of the Malayan Peninsula have a distinct postal history from the other Malayan areas. Mail was originally handled privately by passing ships; the earliest known postal markings date from around 1806, used by a post office on Prince of Wales Island (now Penang). Service was regularized in 1837 by the Indian Post Office Act; postage stamps of India were used from 1854, the Settlements being considered part of the "Bengal circle", then from 1861 part of the "Burma circle". The cancellations used were B109 at Malacca, B147 at Penang, and B172 at Singapore.

When the Settlements became a crown colony in 1867, they had to begin issuing their own stamps, not least because they adopted a currency based on 96 cents to a silver dollar. Beginning on 1 September 1867, nine types in the existing stocks of Indian stamps were overprinted with a crown and a new value in cents. Stamps printed by De La Rue for the Settlements started arriving in December; they are notable for a prominent white frame around the profile of Victoria, inscribed "STRAITS SETTLEMENTS POSTAGE". The set of nine values, 2c to 96c, appeared gradually, with the 30c value not being issued until 1872.

Joint issue - Indonesia and Malaysia

 Inside #1360e: Malaya #84

  Inside #1360f: Indonesia #1LM 1 (Surakarta military stamp 1949)

Lou wrote: A joint issue from Indonesia and Malaysia released on August 8 2011, reproducing the first stamp issued by each as an independent nation, but saved by the very rare stamp chosen by Indonesia. I had to do some involved on line research to come up with a scan and (not much) background information on the stamp.

The Indonesia stamp is a provisional stamp issued by the revolutionary Indonesian army in Surakarta, Java in the self-proclaimed Republic of Indonesia in August, 1949.  According to the sources, only 500 imperf and ungummed 15rp Military stamps were produced, and less than 50 exist today, including several used on covers.  The central motif of the very primitive looking production is two palm trees bordering a smoking fire atop a monument, representing the “inextinguishable blaze of the revolution”.  As a local, provisional issue it is only listed in specialized Indonesia catalogs, but one gives a value of $3500 (U.S.) mint or used.  Also attached is a photo of a portion of the cover of an unnamed catalog which shows a Military stamp cancelled in Surakarta.

The Malaysia stamp with #84 was also produced in a horizontal strip of 4 with three other designs from the SS, but I have not seen a scan of them yet. There is no Malaysia se tenant pair of the two SOS designs except in the sheet.
