The definitive Diamond Jubilee Miniature sheet has the code DIAMMND. Stamps on this sheet-let have no phosphor bands, it seems the Royal Mail have reverted back to (AOP) All Over Phosphor for this issue.
Business sheet Walsall 100 x 1st-class Business sheet is expected to have the code DIAMBND.
Codes for forthcoming large definitves issues are not yet known. These are to be released on 27th March and consist of Counter sheet Walsall 1st-class Large. As these are to be in counter sheets no code is expected for this issue.
Business sheet (Walsall ) 50 x 1st-class Large, some sort of code is expected on stamps from this and the Retail book (Walsall) 4 x 1st-class Large.
This one will be interesting, to be issued on 31st May a Retail definitive booklet to be printed by Walsall. It will contain 4 x 1st-class Jubilee definitives + 2 x 1st-class Diamond Jubilee Commemoratives . It is expected to have a C code incorporated for customised, the code DIAMCND perhaps?
No news of the forthcoming April rate increase as yet, but you can be sure that there will definitaly be one in the pipe line and some new Machins + Regionals to boot.
The stamp quiz is well on the way, to date we have seven contestants that have sent in replies (we need more) so if you have not yet entered please do so without delay.
