the illustrated item is described as
"RARE SPECTACULAR GEMS- 1940s Japanese Occupation of Malaya Johore 4cents Sultan postmarked postcard cancelled blind d/r rare "BENTA" and censored with the rare spectacular postmarked. "

:o oh dear !!!!!
It is actually a demonitised card, cancelled with the dumb Benta mark, and then decorated with various chops by W S Magness of Penang. It occured during the BMA, not during the Occupation.
It is fun but not postal history.
It is not rare.
