Unissued Malaya Stamp - 1959 and 1960 (Newsflash)

This were the 2 stamps planned but unable to release during year 1959 and 1960.

The first stamp (vertical format) was to commemorate the installation of the Yang Di-Pertuan Agong II (second king) of Sultan Selangor in 1 Sept 1960. Stamp designed in grey color as background, 10c and printed in UK. His Majesty passed away at Istana Tetamu in Kuala Lumpur on 1 Sept 1960, the day fixed for his installation. Therefore, the stamp was not release.

The second stamp (horizontal format) was planned to issue in 27 Nov 1959 to commemorate the 25th Anniversary of Accession of the sultan of Negri Sembilan. The country name was Malaya at that time and the stamp designed in red as background, printed in Holland. Denomination is 10c. This stamp was unable to issue due to His Majesty passed away.

NZ Post Recycle Envelope - Save the Planet!

This envelope produced by NZ post for business mailing. The interesting part of this
envelope is designed to be reusable (recycle). The first figure shown the front envelope with Reusable logo. The second figure shown the back side of the envelope. To open the envelope, follow the instruction to tear off the red color paper strip (with arrow sign).

This back side will become the front side when reusing this envelope for mailing. The last 2 figure shown the envelope after tearing off the red paper strip. I do hope other organizations will start using this type of reusable envelope to save our planet.

Kudos to NZ Post for this move.
