Another New Machin

With all the hype and expectancy of new codes etc with the issue of the Jubilee Machins no one gave a thought to a new 2012 code on the second class Machin definitive stamps. That is except for one man.

Ian billings has posted a report on his blog. "The discovery 2nd class Machin with a code M12L - MTIL".

I am now keeping my eyes open for these and for new small and Large 2nd class 2012 Business sheet versions.

Thanks go to Ian, Richard P and JB.

I've had confirmation from a source in Suffolk that the booklets have a packing date of 03/01/12 - and they've managed to get them into Post Offices already.

This is Swindon-delivered stock, not something sent out from Royal Mail Direct to a corner shop or supermarket!

That doesn't mean, of course, that Swindon might not have 2011 stock under the 2012. It does make me wonder how big the print run was for the 2011 12 x 2nd with FSC advert issued only at the end of last October.
