This is the old designed Malaysia Airmail label. Printed in sheet of 40 labels in gummed back format with bird and in Bahasa Malaysia and French. Dark blue.
The printing was poor in quality, perhaps it's not carry any monetary value like stamps, there were no special requirement on the printing. Some other sheets printed in differet period found in good quality.
