SATA Greeting Seals

My late godfather used to buy these SATA greeting seals in the past. Somehow I managed to have a couple of such booklets – from $2 per booklet (10 sheets of 10 seals per sheet) in 1969 to $5 per booklet in 1971. $2 or $5 may not be a large amount now, but at that time (60s and 70s) it was quite a considerable amount.

These are not meant to replace the usual postage stamps but used to decorate your letters as shown below.

For those that do not know what SATA is (click on the link in the first para) , I’m not surprised as TB (Tuberculosis) is no longer a major killer in Singapore. It was in the 60s, thus Singapore Anti-Tuberculosis Association (SATA) was setup in 1947.

    I was born in 1986 but I actually remember these! I kind of knew that they weren’t real stamps so we used them as “play stamps”, but I didn’t realise my daddy had to pay for them.

    Yes the earliest Singapore SATA seals were first issued in 1948. Since then they have issued it every year.

    Good post. I learn something totally new and challenging on sites I stumbleupon everyday.
    It will always be helpful to read through articles from other writers and use something from other sites.
