1480. ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พ Wildlife And Royal Investiture Sets From Pos Malaysia.

    ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พ Pos Malaysia issued a wonderful set of 3 stamps and 2 miniature sheets on 28 July 2019 on the subject of Wildlife conservation. The stamps were lithographed with the miniature sheets having additional metallic effects. This is a very appealing and attractive set. Rating:- *****.

  Pos Malaysia will also issue a set of 3 stamps and 1 miniature sheet on 31 July 2019 to commemorate the Installation of the 16th Yang di-Pertuan Agong (King Of Malaysia) Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah. The set was designed by World Communications Network Resources. Rating:- *****.

   ๐Ÿ‡ญ๐Ÿ‡ฐ Hong Kong Post will issue a miniature sheet containing a single $10 stamp on 13 August 2019 as the eighth part of its ‘World Heritage in China’ series. The stamp is on the subject Zuojiang Huashan Rock Art cultural landscape’. The attractive and interesting item, designed by Wong Ka man and lithographed by Cartor and perforated 13.5, is sadly part of a now clearly excessive new issue programme from Hong Kong Post and therefore its Rating is *.

 ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฒ The next issue from the Myanmar postal service will be the eighth stamp in its Months of the Myanmar calendar series. The stamp which notes the month of Wagaung will be issued on 1 August 2019 and features the Khatta flower (Crinum Amoenum) and Sarye-tan Pwe or lot casting during the Sayedanmรจ Festival. The entire series has been designed by Wai Zin Paing (MPS) and lithographed by Security Printing Works (Myanmar) and perforated 14. Rating:- *****.

   ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡น MaltaPost will issue a set of 4 stamps on 30 July as part of the SEPAC omnibus series featuring the subject of ‘Residential houses’. This attractive set was designed from photographs taken by Alina Absalamova, Angela Spiteri, Anthony Xuereb and Stephania Grixti and was lithographed by Printex and perforated 14. Rating:- ****.

 Finally, at the risk of being self-referential, I note that yesterday, 26 June 2019, Commonwealth Stamps Opinion received its millionth visitor. I wonder how much the issuing and collecting of Commonwealth area stamps will have changed by the time the 2 millionth visit to the Blog occurs. Upwards and onwards.
