Sabah Triple Ring Postmark June 1964



Sabah Undated Triple Ring Postmark, 1964

This interesting SABAH triple ring postmark appeared recently in ebay and ended at AU$150 after 9 bids. The postmark consists of a triple ring mark inscribed SABAH MALAYSIA with an empty centre.

This cover is interesting because the current opinion on the postmark is that it was applied primarily on mails bearing North Borneo stamps. [P. Cockburn, SSS Journal 2011 Vol 64:1 pg 29-30]. It is evident now that mails bearing foreign stamps may also bear this postmark as exemplified by the cover above. It is noteworthy to mention, however, that because the mail above was redirected from Tawau to Sandakan, this internal domestic delivery may have prompted the application of such a postmark. To date, there is no record on regular application of such a postmark on incoming mails to North Borneo.

The mark  was used in seven offices - Jesselton, Sandakan, Tawau, Labuan, Kudat, Beaufort and Railway T.P.O. The mark is usually strucked in violet (as cover above) but other colour variations are said to exist as well (black and blue). Used primarily in June 1964 with the earliest recorded date is 8th June 1964 and the latest date of use is 30th June 1964. In genereal, usually applied on North Borneo stamps of QEII issues before the overprinted Sabah stamps arrived in 1st July 1964.

Hello Every One, My Name is Trevor Cohen live in Texas and life is worth living comfortably for me and my family now. I really have never seen goodness shown to me this much in my life as i am a struggling Dad with three kids and i have been going through a serious problem as my son encountered a terrible accident last week, and the doctors states that he needs to undergo a delicate surgery for him to be able to walk again, and i could not afford the bill for his surgery then i went to the bank for a loan and they turn me down stating that credit score was bad, from there i run to my father and some of my freinds but they could not help, then when i was surfing through the net i came across a loan lender EDWARD JONES who provides loans at an affordable interest rate of 2% and i have been hearing about so many scams on the internet but at this time, in my desperate situation i had no choice than to give it a try and surprisingly it was all like a dream, i received a loan of $85,000.00 and i payed for my son surgery and thank GOD today he is okay and can walk. I could in turn start something profitable with the remaining amount and i said to my self that i will shout loud to the world of the wonders of GOD to me through this GOD fearing lender EDWARD JONES and i will advise anyone in genuine and serious need of loan to contact this GOD fearing Company via: OR Text him +1(307) 217-5388
