Olympic Prestige Booklet

This is just a quick note to inform readers that a third Prestige booklet of the year is in the pipeline: Why are Royal Mail keeping these announcements so quiet from general collectors? It is only a few weeks away.

Anyway the word is, that on  27th July 2012 (not 27 June ) As stated. The London 2012 Olympic Games – Prestige Stamp Book will be issued.

It is thought (but not confirmed) that this will contain a definitive pane, the question being asked is will they be Machins, Regional stamps or Olympic type definitives.

The money is on Olympic definitives, but with all the hush of late we will  have to wait and see!

My money's on Olympic definitives and no Machins... though one suggestion talks of 1948s with new values!

I'm not sure, but I thought that the prestige book was due on 27th July (same day as the Olympic Welcome miniature sheet?)and not 27th June. Either way, I'd agree that it certainly doesn't seem to have had a lot of advance publicity so far.

You are correct, I hadn't noticed that error - it's 27 July. (checked my site, must check my blog!) Too many stamp issues, too many similar dates!
