Malaysia - Pulau Pinang, Postal History of Kedah

Another first day cover, this time from Malaysia, showing the postal history of Kedah. And I didn't see it before but the postmark is a bit special - 20.12.2012.

2012 Malaysia stamp - RM3 souvenir sheet
Kedah pioneered the use of postal services in Malaysia 125 years ago. Malaysia has issued four stamps on the postal history of Kedah to coincide with the centenary of issuance of the first Kedah stamps. The three stamp designs in the collection are in 90sen denominations showing a padi sheaf, Malay farmer ploughing and Balai Besar. The miniature sheet contains a stamp in RM3 denomination featuring the earliest known prepaid items from Kedah. This is one of the few times that Malaysia Post has used the stamp on stamp printed design.
