Someone recently on the Machin Forum mentioned that the Jubilee machins had different value settings to the Gold 1st class. In fact there are two different types, in his latest report Douglas explains these in great detail.
A must see in his latest report is the diagram of the massive sideways phosphor shift to the Machin pane in Aerial Post Prestige Book reported (by Alex) back in February. There is only one word to describe this : "SPECTACULAR"
Deegam Reports delve into the heart of specialised collecting, deeper than you will read on any Blog. They are no longer sent out by Philatelic Associations, but backdated issues are still free direct from DEEGAM. First (if you wish) you must subscribe, to the award winning handbook which is produced on CD.
