Postcards

Example:


Cancels

The earliest cancels of Perak consist of an oval with parallel bars (by the way, this cancel was also used in Sungei Ujong):

This cancel exists in black, red and violet (violet was only used in Sungei Ujong).

Circular date stamps were used from 1882 onwards.

Cancels with 'PAID' were also used in Perak, could this be one of them?:

'PAID' cancel
(Perak 'PAID' cancel?)


Fiscal stamps

Example, fiscal stamp of Straits Settlements overprinted 'PERAK':
