Malaysia Sarawak 1/4, 1/2, and 1 Cent 1863 to 1891

Sarawak was a British protectorate on the northern coast of Borneo in the South Pacific, northwest of Australia. The Japanese occupied it during World War II and devistated its economy to the point that Rajah C V Brooke ceded it to Great Britain in 1946. Sarawak is part of the Federation of Malaysia today.
