1909 North Borneo 18c used

Just to let some friends know that I'm still alive & kicking hard :)

I have a few copies of this 18c used but all with the Sandakan CDS, this is the 1st non-Sandakan I've collected. Being overprinted about 2 months after issue date, I expected very few used copies, I have suspected favored canceling at Sandakan PO afterwards, though I've seen one Sandakan used on postcard, owned by gantianexpress. Hope other collectors could enlighten me on this subject.

jeremy6139 should be back from holiday in Spain by now. g-matang has gone to Xinjiang last weekend, I guess he's drinking horse milk tea & looking for stamp-shops like all of us would do. Hope he found a love letter from my grandpa to his secret girlfriend in China more than 20 years ago, thereafter, any communication would not be via postal services :)

This was a KUCHING forge postmark instead of a real KUDAT postmark. Thanks for the information from 'owley' of Australia, also a member of the SSS.

Hello Johnny,

That is an interesting bit of information. I checked mine, and 'yes' they are 'Sandakan' cancels. I have one that I cannot make out, but it is probably 'Sandakan' too. Thanks for bringing that observation to light (at least for me).

Let me know if your pay-per click email work....tried quite a number a few years back but return was small.

Ebay has just updated the STAMPS categories :

Look for expansions in the Topical section including Flora, Fauna, and Nature, and in many international areas, including new breakdowns for Commonwealth/British Colonial and the Middle East.

I thought this is another great opportunity if you have stamps falling under those and the demand which warrant such update in Ebay.
