Malaysia Stamp - Coronation of New Agung of Malaysia

I went to Johor Bahru GPO on August 1, 2019 and was only able to get an incomplete set of stamps - minus the 60 sen stamps and no more FDC blank cover. Anyway, creating this unique FDC - better than none. Hope to purchase a full set from other sellers soon.
