Sorting Machins

Gosh , Larry, that last (informative) post is one hard act to follow. So I have come up with this for today.

Machin Questionnaire

Occasionally (in the past) we have had a quiz or prize draw. Just to add a bit of spice and something different I think it is time for another. Lets see how clever you are.


According to the web site icons.org.uk there are 18 different ways to sort and separate used Machins. I can not think of 18 ways myself. So here is your chance to show me (us) what you think you know.

What are these 18 ways? I will start you you off with three. Phosphor Bars, perforations, and Printing method.

A ( nice) prize for who ever gets these missing answers to me first. This competition will be open for 7 days from today. I will add the answers to the bottom of this page and announce the winner and the mystery prize next week

Email me here with the subject line "Machin quiz"

Thanks to Scott, he mentions "that there are possibly more than 18 now that we have the new security self adhesive slit Machins. So without more of ado the prize will go to the person who can name the most"

Good Luck


Roy

Good evening.

I was surprise to find 16 ways very quickly whereas I interested in Machins just once every three months when an article or a stamp issue occur.

Finally, I propose 18 in the mail I sent you.
