Malaysia Nilai Murni Virtues Stamps Issued 13th Day Of June, 2011, Withdrawn 17th Day Of June, 2011.

***On the 13th day of June, 2011, recently, a new set of Malaysian stamps was issued with the Nilai Murni/Virtues theme.
And on the 17th day of July, 2011, that means that very same week, the very same set of stamps was officially withdrawn by the Malaysian postal authority.
Apparently, the "Indian" wordings on the stamps were in Hindi & not Tamil.
I don't really know what 'withdrawn' means but certainly, those who bought these stamps are not going to return them to the post offices, that's for sure.
And a new set of similar stamps will be issued & this time it will have the 'correct' Indian words in Tamil & not in Hindi.

Whether this so-called 'error' stamps will increase in price in the foreseeable future is left to be seen.
