These beautiful covers sent by my good friend Susan, who is a numismatist. Brunei has beautiful stamps but the philatelic service is not much explored and unreliable. She specially requested for the perfect postmarks and registration of the envelopes, so it resulted to get perfect covers from Brunei. The covers posted on and I received in my hands on September 19, 2016. Thank You Susan for the big help.
