The Great War 2nd Prestige Booklet
A few weeks ago we mentioned that a new prestige booklet will be issued on 14th May. This will be the second booklet in the series depicting The Great War and will cost £13.96.
The main news was that it will contain a Machin pane mixed with two poppy stamps. I suggested that there will be three new Machins to collect from this pane. I also stated that the stamps on the pane will be 2 x 1p, 2 x 5p and a value of £1.33p.
In actual fact there are 2 x £1.33 Machin stamps on the pane (sorry for the confusion)
The background codes will be as reported M15L/MPIL these are now on view showing the codes via Ian Billings blog.
Ian also informs us in a later blog post that thare are also several new Machins that have been issued in 2015, he now lists a total 31 new 2015 issues to date, all have MA15 or M15L codes unless stated.
Thanks Ian for the information.
