Malaysia - Celebrate the Millennium Series II


I try to learn more about the stamps by checking on the ones I come across. While search for more details, I get lots of fun doing that , and learn more 'stories' about them.

While helping with some mails for an organization, I picked a few that interest me at first sight. So, I will update here the information I found.

Above is the stamp I cut from one of the envelop, which has the words "Millennium 18/20" on it. I found that this is a 2nd series issue by Malaysia, called "Celebrate the Millennium Series II". It is issued on 1st January 2000.

The full set of the issue as below:
a) Set of 10 stamps each with value of 30sen.


b) the miniature sheet with stamp of RM1 of value, and the background bears the map of Malaysia.

ATM stamps from Singapore



While helping to open letters at an office, found a couple of unique stamps. On further checking, these are the ATM stamps from Singapore. If I interpreted them correctly, the S511 & S101 are the ATM machines that printed the issues. If anyone knows better about these, feel free to let me know, I will be gald to learn more about them. This is the first time I seen the real ATM stamps.
