Received an interesting mail from a customer of mine:
Malaysia Brunei Joint Issue – Unique Marine Life has been issued on 6.feb.2007.
Why had been the year 2006 printed on all stamps and S/S ???
Is it error from the post ???
Looking forward to hearing from you soon.
The answer is simple. This issue was originally scheduled for 2006. After the stamps were nicely printed and delivered, the Issue Date was deferred and eventually the stamps were issued in February 2007.
Pos Malaysia has decided NOT to reprint the stamps (most probably due to the cost involved?).
The images of the items in question are shown below.
