Machin Colour Trials
I am sorry that I have not had much time to post over the last week or so, other commitments have kept me rather busy.
The majority of the latest news is already online, so in all fairness you have not missed to much with my absence.
Whilst I was scratching about on the web I have come across one item which you may find interesting.
Last November David Feldman, Philatelic Auctioneers (Switzerland) put up for sale a collection of modern errors, one of which were four blocks of Machin colour trials.
These were described as:
LOT 30143 Queen Elizabeth II.
Machins 1973 4x Machin colour trials without value, blocks of 4 in deep lilac, pale lilac, pale turquoise & deep turquoise, on shiny un-gummed paper, very fine & scarce.
This lot was offered in the region of £1.500. I believe it failed to meet its reserve.
