Spotted 2 items a year ago on eBay. One is a postcard and the other is a 30-cent stamp. Both of which look rather dubious. Is anyone able to ascertain the authenticity of these items?

I agree they look dubious !

the double frame chop on the postcard is nothing like the real thing.

And the chop on the 30c stamp is nothing like any of the 9 types.

Tred Proud's book on the Occupation is still available, see the bibliography on this site for " Postal History of the Occupation of Malaya and British Borneo 1941-1945"

it answers your questions on these items. :)

I've spotted yet another dubious stamp.

The chop is smudged and the stamp on the right doesn't bear a chop at all.
