How common is the Perlis $3 booklet with inverted watermark stamps? I have 5 booklets, one inverted and 4 normal. Anyone know how many are reported to date?

Hi Len,

just seenthis posting in respect of the 1986 Definitive Booklets - can I just check what you mean by National carrier top or bottom.

is this a reference to the position of the slogan EMS poslaju Malaysia or is it something else? can you let me know & then i will be able to respond in respect of my booklets.

Should all the covers for the $2RM be the same colour as I have a couple of them that are the same colour as the $3RM covers

regards John

The Type 2 cover includes in the EMS emblem the words "National Courier". These do not appear on the Type 1 cover.

The first RM2 books to be produced had buff covers, but when it was realised that these could be confused with the RM3 books, they changed the colour to green for the states had had not yet been printed. If you had buff and green RM2 covers for the same state, that would be a new discovery!

Len ,

thanks for a very useful response. I hadn't appreciated that there were two backs to this issue of Booklets - mine are all type 1.

:cry:

Based on that information I've detailed my "holdings" below, I hope it helps: -
FT RM2 - buff cover - top margin attached to cover
FT RM3 - buff cover - bottom margin attached to cover
Johor RM2 - green cover - bottom margin attached to cover
Johor RM3 - buff cover - bottom margin attached to cover
Kedah RM2 - green cover - top margin attached to cover
Kedah RM3 - buff cover -top margin attached to cover
Kelantan RM2 - green cover - bottom margin attached to cover
Kelentan RM3 - buff cover -top margin attached to cover
Melaka RM2 - green cover - top margin attached to cover
Melaka RM3 - buff cover -bottom margin attached to cover
Negri S RM2 - green cover - bottom margin attached to cover
Negri S RM3 - buff cover -bottom margin attached to cover
Pahang RM2 - green cover - bottom margin attached to cover

I need to sort out watermarks & if I pick up anything different to what's already reported i will get back to you

thanks for your advice - can't wait for your bookl on Malaysia - I suspect my limited knowledge will be greatly enhanced by its publication :D

regards

John
