some later day cancellations

Some of these cancellations are difficult to find especially good clear strikes. They are arguably more rare than some of the older and more well known postmarks. I do not have a good selection and they will be replaced eventually as I find better examples.

The Airport P. O. Jesselton cancellation was in use between 1966 and 1968 and was the only cancel of that time without "Sabah Malaysia" in its setting.

This Semporna D2 was in use for more than 10 years from 1951 but still it is not a postmark which is often seen.

Not a good example of a Sipitang D4 used between 1962 and 1963. Its older brother, the D2 which was employed 1910-17 is one of the most elusive of NB cancellations and is priced accordingly.

Again a poor example of a Tuaran D1. I am not sure whether dark violet is the usual colour.

Cannot fault this one, the Tamparuli D2 with star which was in use for less than a year from end of 1962. Why D2? Is there supposed to be a D1?

This Lahad Datu D15 was used between 1955 and 1963. The D16 is also a star cancel but much more uncommon and in use between 1962 and 63.

Tenom D14 with star dated SP (19)60 which was in use between 1955 and 1963.

This Papar D3 is the most common of the first 4 Papar cancellations as it was used for more than 10 years from 1951.
