I recently acquired a triangular stamp which is not in the catalogue, with Burung Belatuk Raya inscription and a "red-headed" woodpecker. It does have a sideways SPM watermark. Can anyone please tell me anything about this stamp?

I have not seen this design before, but there were a series of dubious "essays" released onto the market about ten years ago, which were disowned by both Pos Malaysia and the Malaysian design approval committee. This may be another.

Thanks for the reply, it is odd that it was printed on "official" paper, i.e. SPM watermark.

Yes, I have seen this before. It is one of those dubious items, first seen in 2008, which were clearly produced privately by SPM circa 2006, but never submitted for any official purposes. The best that you could describe them as is "unsubmitted essays". The similar dance stamps are listed in the 2005 chapter of my book and I have added a note about the woodpecker in the next edition.

Thanks for the reply. I have seen this stamp offered on two occasions, but cannot find the internet one I did not buy!
