Pos Malaysia Berhad will be issuing a special collection of stamps and first-day covers with regards to POS Offices in Malaysia on 9th October 2010.There will be a total of 28 design with 60 sen denomination in a full sheet. In addition, the cover will be sold at 30 sen each.

This is definitely a very interesting issue as it depicts the old and new post offices from all the 14 states. In addition, it is significant because the launching day coincides with the World Post Day on 9th October. Please take note of the UPU emblem in the space between the two blocks, next to the three generations of POS logos. So the topic is very appropriate indeed.

It will definitely be a very interesting FDC as you can always try to get 14 different state postmark. However, a bigger cover is needed if you are to frank all the stamps on a single cover. Some creative thinking to do. LOL

However, personally i feel the price is definitely a BOMB for many collectors, even for me. I would prefer it to be issued in smaller quantities and could potentially be a very interesting collectible series.

If collectors feel those issues are over price, price not affordable by school children, not practice for postage use and slowly killing the hobby. I suggest collector to write in directly to Pos Malaysia Philately Section. When many collectors send it their concerns, view and constructive opinion, I believe Pos Malaysia will at least listen and take this valuable comments from it's customers to establish their future stamp issuing policy. So some organization, body, interest group must stand together and encourage collectors to send in their comments. Otherwise, it just another Teh Tarik session. What do you think?

Dear Anonymous,

Thanks for the constructive feedback. I agree with you but to be fair, I definitely believe PSM has tried to bring this matter to the POS but sadly I dont see any improvement. Do share with us on how we could collectively send our concern to POS Malaysia. Your comments/feedback will be greatly appreciated.

Well, perhaps gather signature from members, collectors and submit to Pos Malaysia to raise the concerns. This can be initiated by PSM, any school philatelic society, or even group of collectors form by neighborhood, or individual collector to write in. Of course, if proper body have access and direct discuss with Pos Malaysia is the best approach, not just highlight the concern, but what collector like to see in the stamp issuing policy (suggesting a solution). Consistently do this especially there is changing of management in Pos.

Other may have better suggestions.
