Straits Settlements
Indian stamps were used in the three post offices of the Straits Settlement - Malacca, Penang & Singapore from late 1854. The Indian stamps were originally cancelled by a dumb obliterator and their use in the Straits Settlements can only be identified on complete covers. In 1856 standard Indian octagonal type cancels were issued: numbered "B 109" for Malacca, "B 147" for Penang and "B 172" for Singapore. Penang & Singapore octagonals were replaced by duplex cancels in 1863 and 1865 respectively.
