New Countries Stamps

With the dissolution of Netherland Antilles into Curacao, Sint Marteen and BES Islands (Bonaire, Sint Eustatius, Saba) or Caribisch Nederland, these are the new stamps. I hope to collect them all on postcards sent from these countries. Anyone can help.

My first postcard arrived from Saba with this BES Island stamp. Thanks to Tristan.

Malaysia Stamps - Year 1966

There is a stamp collector who collects stamps issued in Year 1966. Out of my own curiosity, I checked the Malaysia Stamp catalogue to see what stamps were issued in 1966 and scanned these 4 sets of stamps from my own collection. For your viewing pleasure and perhaps bring back some fond philatelic memories.

1) Feb 24, 1966 - National Monument, Kuala Lumpur

2) Apr 11, 1966 - Installation of Yang Di-Pertuan Agong Tunku Ismail Nasiruddin Shah

3) Oct 21, 1966 - 150th Anniversary of Penang Free School

4) Dec 1, 1966 - First Malaysia Plan - Agriculture, Rural Health, Communications, Education, Irrigation
