The Stamps and Postal History

A beautiful area of stamp collecting most of the stamps for the Malaya States were printed by De La Rue of London and the engravings, design and production quality is very high. Many of the 19th Century issues are the stamps of the Straits Settlements overprinted with the State name, this is true for Johore, Sungei Ujong, Negri Sembilan, Pahang, Perak and Selangor and the wide range of different types, often caused by a lack of local typeface, has fascinated stamp collectors for generations.


Unusually collectors of Kedah can choose to hunt down stamps of early Thailand postmarked within Kedah as the Thai postal system slowly extended itself outside of its borders.One of the many glories of these stamps are the designs unique to this area of British Empire philately with the exotic local rulers, the large Elephant high values, Ploughing Oxen, the Leaping and Roaring Tigers, and the magnificent Trengannu high values plus so many more.The Japanese Occupation saw stamps from Johore, Kedah, Kelantan, Malacca, Negri Sembilan, Pahang, Penang, Perak, Selangor, Trengganu and the Straits Settlements overprinted using a wide range of styles from the personalised chops of Government accountants to large types which covered 4 stamps at once.
