Federated Malay States : 3¢ on Paper (1913)
An interesting piece of FMS stamp used and still stuck on a paper, which is assumed to be a "ON GOVERNMENT SERVICE" envelope.

The condition of the stamp and paper is excellent as no brown spot at all, considering it was kept in the tropical climate area.

3¢ was contemporary local rate mail.

The postmark could be confirmed with Proud, as it looks like D20 as it has not time slug, but it is categorised under D23.
