Malaysia State Definitive Series Collection - Garden Flowers (FDC by denominations)
Officially or by standard practice, most collectors will make their FDC by state, i.e. 14 different miniature sheets on 14 covers, with different state postmarks. Which I highlighted in my previous post.
Since definitive is hardly issue, especially the previous issue used for more then 20 years, thus, I take this rare opportunity to make the FDC by denominations, with total of 84 stamps. That's 14 stamps per denomination per cover, total 6 covers (5c, 10c, 20c, 30c, 40c and 50c).
In order to do this, I break the stamp from the miniature sheet (this is not really a good guideline to make FDC) and pasted onto the cover. For each FDC, I only have one state cancellation, this make sense and valid as I brought the full set of stamps and cancelled the cover at say "Kuching" post office, in Sarawak.
Anyway, is just a personal preference on making your own FDC and have fun enjoying it.
