Malaysia - Johor

Cover showing Malaysian holidays. The envelope must have caught in the sorting machine because there is quite a bit of ink smudge in the second and third stamps.

The second in the Malaysian Festivals series, these stamps were issued on September 27, 2012. The set of stamps, all with a denomination of 60sen, depict the festivals of Hari Raya Aidiladha, Thaipusam, Moon Cake Festival, Regatta Lepa and Kaul Festival. The first three festivals are celebrated nationwide while the Regatta Lepa and the Kaul festival are celebrated only in Sarawak and Sabah respectively. The stamps have a special diffractive holographic foil.
