You could smile if you have done a correct Maximum Card . You feel sad and moody when a proper MC is messed up by a poor cancellation of the postmark , especially so, when the postcard is a Real Hard find . No matter how "professional" you are in canceling of the postmark on a maximum card, at times, miss handling does occur, this cannot be avoided. If the MCs are given to the postal department for cancellation, the chances of getting back good postmark cancels on the MCs are even lower ( speaking in the case of Malaysia postal departments) . Worst of all, the cards sent for postmarking were NOT returned to you at all. No choice, as a maximaphilist, you will have to faced with these mishaps. I hope all of you will be smiling with the MCs you have created.
- The above Maximum Card was realised on 26.4.2010 with stamps themed " Medical Excellence " bearing FDI pictorial cancel at Kuala Lumpur.
