Can readers respond to this question and let me know what they consider to be their all time favourite? I will post the results from this thread (along with images) here on this blog in due course.
IE: This can be a single stamp, coil, pane, block or miniature sheet
I can confirm I have many favourites, I will not go into detail and post them all but my all time one off special favourite is this one.
The Special by Design Prestige Booklet printed in gravure by Walsall Security Printers produced a striking pane of 8 x Millennium Machins surrounding a centre label of the Post Office crest.
Issued on 05th February 2000. I can confirm that this pane produced several new single stamps which are sought after by specialists.
Inset bands left, inset bands right and short bands both top and bottom have been discovered.
Another interesting fact came to light when this pane was studied by specialists in detail.
Stamps on this pane are perforated to a different size than other Millennium stamps issued by Walsall. The perforations measure 14 x 14 compared to 15 x 14 on other issues.
