Images from the author's collection

  • the left stamp is cancelled December 1898, probably at RAUB, PAHANG.
  • IDENTIFIED: "Your unknown ID 006 is the Punjom Mining Co. Ltd. of Raub and Kuala Lipis (Pahang) - it is a common chop on stamps of Pahang in the late 1890s." [Gaden Robinson email 24 Jan. 2006]
  • " THE PUNJOM MINING COMPANY, LTD - R.H. has a complete strike on a Kuala Lipis cover and I have partial strikes from both Kuala Lipis and Raub. But there is also RAUB AUSTRALIAN GOLD MINES [or MINING??] LTD (I think G.P. has this) which is also a linear chop in capitals. Your copy with the clear 1898 Raub cancel matches my Punjom, but the mark on the 3c/32c seems to have shorter letters and I wonder if it could be Raub Australian." Gaden Robinson 8 Feb 2006
