Malaysia SOCSO (Perkeso) stamps - Part 1 (1974)

This collection of SOCSO (Perkeso) stamps are not listed in the catalogue. The stamps are all in mint condition. It was used in government revenue on insurance documents and receipts. This stamps are not sell in public and mint copy is extremely rare.

This set contains of 12 stamps, exact date of issue was not known but it was issued in 1975, printed by London Print on PTM paper.

In my coming article, I will features the SOCSO 1974 issued with 5 stamps and 1971 issued with 18 stamps, printed by Dublin Print and the 1971, 10c reprint on thin PTM paper. All are same designed with different color and value. This will be the complete set of SOCSO and it is my favorite collections.

I don't know the value of this stamps now, if collectors have any idea, kindly inform me. Thanks.

I also wish the dealer can include this in the catalogue.

    hi, i like the socso stamp you have. I didn't know that they also have socso stamp for Malaysia.
    I think the price must be expensive because the stamp book price didn't show this stamp before.

  2. I have this stamp and I put it under Cinderella stamps categories. That is why uncatalogued. FYI, Malaysia have first miniature cinderella stamp. Issued on 1st Dec 1997 in stamp week - protected wildlife. Not many, only 1,000 copy. A Cinderella stamps is a superb items to collect.
