New Issuue MA12 and MRIL printed by Enschede
Summer is a busy time of the year, I have relations over on holiday for 5 weeks at the moment so I am finding it difficult to sit down and play on the computer for any length of time. I have been checking my emails and searching the web now and again.
Thanks to Ian Rose I have some news of another new Machin. Ian informs me that this has been seen on eBay. There is a picture of a strip but it does not show the codes so I have not reproduced it here..
"2nd self adhesive with MA12 and MRIL printed by Enschede. Presumably from roll of 10,000 though the eBay listing does not say so. Since they are mint and from a dealer, there should presumably be a plentiful supply. Sounds like someone has a complete roll somewhere."
At the moment they are being sold in strips of 5. I believe these strips have a number on the back of one stamp. It is believed that a well known dealer has purchased £5000 pounds worth. Ian adds to his note that "Richard Parsons has told him that he had found this same stamp in kilo-ware a few days ago. "
They are also being sold via another dealer, who wrongly states they were printed by De La Rue, no doubt this dealer has either shared the cost of the roll or has obtained his stock from the same original purchaser.
Ian finishes his message with "Now all we need to know is whether they printed any 10000 rolls in 2011 -- oh, and if there is a 1st MA12 MRIL."
My last post bubble Packs generated some interest from Brian Morris who has replied to the post with some new information. Thanks Brian for your input. It it always good to hear from people who read the blog and can give another perspective to the posts.
