May 2010 London 2010 Festival of Stamps - Continued
The first of the prestige stamp books (3rd this year) has been now been unveiled. Although at this time it only shows two pages of content. I have been informed that there is a Machin pane. This could be a pane of the new double head 1st class stamps showing Elizabeth II and George V profiles heads in tandem.
The fourth Prestige Stamp book of the year due to be issued on 13 May 2010 is entitled Britain Alone. Pictures of the cover have now been publicised. It is presumed that this will also offer a Page of Machin stamps, together with the Special issues (Britain Alone) which will be released on the same date.
Are we still to believe Royal Mail when they say " no more than four Prestige Stamp Books will be issued in the period of one year." I doubt this statement very much , 2010 has seven more months to (run) expect at least another one or two after the issue of this one described above.
Anyone taking bets?
