Brunei-1968-A Commemorative Postage Stamp-The Sultan's Birthday-Illustrated

In 1967 Sultan Omar Ai Saifudden of Brunei abdicated and Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah assumed the throne. The next year in 1968 a set of three postage stamps were issued to commemorate Sultan Hassanal's birthday. The set had three values of 4, 12 and 25 Cents, all of the same multicoloured design with only values in the bottom right corner differentiating the stamps. The stamps bore a painted portrait of the new sultan.
