New information regarding the new Red Machins due in January 2013
As well as the customised booklets (code C) expect several more new stamps. As well as 1st Class Business Sheet (100) , 1st Class Large Business Sheet (50) the other new versions that will be made available are code (S) from the 6 x 1st booklet, code (T) from the 12 x 1st booklet and code (F) from 4 x 1st Large Retail booklets.
The re-print 50p originally light grey will be changed to slate grey. Judging by the comments from Royal Mail it is assumed that the earlier 50p stamps were causing slight problems with sorting machinery.
The new colour for the £1 is (Wood Brown), presumably the change is because the current colour Ruby is to near the new 1st class colour red.
