Malaysia FDC with Singapore stamps

Post by shabzimandi » Fri Jun 25, 2021 00:06:03 am
Hello everyone,

I was going through my grandfather's collection when I stumbled upon a couple of FDCs of which one particularly caught my fancy.

The FDC is a postally used 1st FDC of Malaysia with Singapore stamps mailed out on 16th September 1963 (the very first day of the Formation of Malaysia with Singapore & Malaya merging).

Upon researching I found that Singapore as a separate entity ceased to exist from 16th September 1963 (the very same day this FDC was mailed out with Singapore stamps).

Can someone please tell me whether this was a common practice back then or would this be considered as something Scarce or Rare? I did try searching the Net for similar covers but was unsuccessful in finding Singapore stamps on Malaysian FDCs

Any help or information would surely help in knowing more about this Cover (images attached)

Thanks & Regards,

Shabz

The sender simply used the Malaysia FDC as an ordinary envelope. No need to overthink.

BTW, nice username. Shabzimandi is the only place I now visit given the lockdown restrictions here in Kolkata.

The airmail rate to India was 35c per 14.18gm (˝oz). The cover was overpaid. Moreover there is a stamp missing at the left of Singapura 1963 1c SG 63 pair on the obverse side.

There was a sizeable population of Gujarati Bohra Muslim community in Singapura.
