Federation of Negeri Sembilan - Surcharged 4¢ on 1¢ (1898-1899)
This stamp was overprinted and issued because the postage rate within the then British Empire was reduced from 8 cents to 4 cents as part of the Imperial Penny Postage plan of 1898. The rate to non Empire countries remained at 8 cents until 1918.
