I thought I’d share the two items that were recently auctioned in eBay for future reference. The top item is a Parcel Post from Sandakan to Glasgow, Scotland. It has $1.56 franking and cancelled with Sandakan Parcel Post oval mark (1 AUG 1932).
Proud indicates that this particular postmark is in use from 20.01.1931 – 01.08.1932, making this piece the last known date of use of such postmark.

Both items fetched £686 after 17 bids. Well done to the winner! I would love to see his North Borneo collection at some stage if he wouldn’t mind 🙂
