SMRT First Day Cover with the number 1 chop
Description: Scanned from my collections purchased from Fang Zheng coins and stamps, (at the ground floor of) Furama Hotel, Chinatown, Singapore on 24 October 2007.

I am uploading this in commemoration of SMRT's 20th anniversary (7 November 1987 - 7 November 2007) of successfully providing a highly efficient, economical, environmentally friendly and enjoyable train services today. I will like to dedicate this to SMRT in tribute to their very effective and efficient services rendered.

I spent approximately one hour at Fang Zheng there to find this very special first day cover - when it came unexpectedly. I never dream that I would get hold of this one day. I was very glad and lucky to have found this after one hour of searching for the SMRT FDCs with much nicer numbers (say, 1,2,3,6,8,9,10 and multiples of 5 and 10, and any combinations of auspicious numbers given above).

I bought this for SGD $3 (approximately RM 6).

This is what I found inside the FDC when I opened it for a look inside. A card with some information of this FDC and the SMRT system.

I have since received the permission from Fang Zheng coins and stamps shop shopkeeper and Benny to upload this picture. Acknowledgements to them for granting the permission.

it is possible to have extras of this.

(note: the shopkeeper may not necessarily be the so-called Mr. Fang. It is the shop's name being known as Fang Zheng coins and stamps.)

i went to Fang Zheng coins and stamps for the 1st time on 19 june 2007. back then i saw the SMRT FDCs stamped with #77 and #87.

after some 4 months of absence, i went back there again on 24 october 2007, having made up my mind to get at least 1 set of it. instead of #77 and #87, i saw set #80 first, and subsequently the set #1 after 1 hours of searching inside and outside the shop (Fang Zheng stamps and coins shop do put their merchandise outside the shop most of the time FYI).

i purchased the set #1 maybe left with #80 or maybe not........

so this means, whether the shop have extras of this, depends on when you visit the Fang Zheng coins and stamps........... and your luck too

If im not wrong...

The stamps are still available at post offices but not the first day cover. If you want to get just the stamps, you can go down to any SingPost outlets.
