Persekutuan Tanah Melayu - National Pictorial Definitive Series (1957)
Not much information known about first First Day Cover and I was told that this cover is considered rare in Malayan Federation's philatelic.

On the reverse side, the flap was originally gummed, however it was opened and can be seen residue and paper hanging.

The FDC was originated from Kuala Lumpur, the seat of the Federation to an address in Singapore
