No postmarks on this registered letter from Singapore. The envelope was from a 1991 philatelic presentation pack for a set of stamps about the history of civil aviation. The envelope has a nice weight to it. The group of four stamps at the top are 2000 Year of the Dragon stamps. Bottom right is a 1999 "Economic Progress" stamp from the "20th century in retrospective" stamp sheet. And next to that is a low value definitive.

Very cute Lunar New Year sheet from Taisha-cho which I believe is a district of the city of Mishima, Japan. The pictorial postmark shows the Mishima Taisha shrine in the city of Mishima with Mount Fuji in the background.

The two stamps on the left are from a sport stadium series in 2022: the Anna Meares Velodrome on the top and an upside down Adelaide Oval on the bottom. In the middle are a pair of Rottnest Island definitives from 2007. And the 2022 stamp on the right commemorates 50 years since Australia became the first country to mandate compulsory seatbelt use in the front and back seats of a vehicle.
