This is my collection of Malaysia Registered labels from different periods of time. Each label is printed or postmark with the town or city name. Some with rectangular shape, some is round corner rectangular shape. This labels no longer in use as today registered mail is using barcode label for better traceability and Pos Malaysia providing online tracing of all registered letters by keying in the reference number.
My previous post also shown a Malaysia Registered cover:
This posting shown various NZ parcel size airmail labels (large) used in different period of time. For label with Kiwi symbol, the back side of the label with preprinted text: PRE GUMMED.

German registered letter received today from a German friend. With white registration label (bar code) and two different design airmail labels. At the back of the cover is the registration bar code label from Pos Malaysia. I need to sign and provide identity card number on the said label and return to the post officer in order to claim this letter.

These 4 different airmail labels are old design from Canada. All the 3 labels produced in different period has the Maple leaf symbol that identical to the national flag. The last one is pure text based design (printed text: By Air Mail, Par Avion).
This is the Malaysia Surface Mail label. Printed in large size for parcel mailing and in self adhesive format, in sheet of 6.
With a ship pictorial image and used green as background. Printed with Bahasa Malaysia "Melalui Laut" (By Sea).
There are reprint cater for the needs of the demand of the labels, I have found 2 reprints with different indicator printed on the selvage:
Above sheet: mel udara Faizal 13/12/06 (shin) size 7.9' x 6.5'.
Not sure the date printed is for the master printing proof and the person name is either the designer or just the person in charge assigned to do the printing plate. And indicated the size.
No details indicator, just an hand drawn "down arrow sign".
Both are printed in sheet of 20 self adhesive format.
