    Same thing as all the others. Jawi (Malay in Arabic) rotated 90 degrees
    clockwise in the left box. Chinese (ba1fen1 "8 cents") in funky seal forms
    in the box on the right. These are the exact same characters as
    in another one of the North Borneo 8 cent stamps listed at the URL Richard posted earlier in this thread.
