Malaysia Stamp - Coronation of 15th King of Malaysia Sultan Muhammad V - April 24, 2017 Issue

For this stamp issue, I travelled to Kelantan State where the new King of Malaysia Sultan Muhammad V who is the Sultan of Kelantan. I  visited all the 6 major post offices (Kota Bharu, Tumpat, Pasir Mas, Pasir Puteh, Tanah Merah, Gua Musang) with pictorial First Day Cover cancellation.

On the way back to Penang, I also visited all the post offices (Kuala Lipis, Raub, Bentong of Pahang state; Rawang of Selangor State; Tanjung Malim and Tapah of Perak State) along the way to get their First Day Cover cancellation and later at Dato Kramat Post Office in Penang State.

For Tumpat post office, the FDC chop did not arrive in time and for Kuala Lipis, there is no FDC cancellation but since Kuala Lipis is a relatively remote town and a former capital of Pahang, I wanted to get a normal post office cancellation.

Another First Day Cover sent by another collector for my collection.
