Penang : Portrait of Queen Elizabeth II 6¢ (1956)
Postal stationery of Penang, previously part of Straits Settlements and during this time was incorporated into Malaya.

On top of indicia, a purple handstamp of 'First Day of Issue' makes this postcard an important piece in the philatelic history as it helps to establish the issuing date. Steven Tan's Standard Catalogue of Malaysia, Singapore & Brunei - Revenue Stamps and Postal Stationery (First Edition, page 32) established the date for this postcard as 1954 (ISC.Penang.P6),

Handstamped address,
W. S. Magness
3 College Square
Penang, Malaya

One circular date stamp (CDS) was used, either posted or as CTO.
