Readers will recall that the late decision to retain the 10g Worldwide and Postcard rate in the April 2014 tariff has caused some confusion over the validity of Post and Go stamps and the monetary value of older Faststamps and booklet stamps.
Now there is an unofficial report that there will be a further change on Monday 28 April:
The Europe 20g NVI will change to show Euro 20g/World 10g. The value of the stamp remains 97p. No picture of this layout has been seen, and it's difficult to envisage just how this will be shown. Also it is not clear whether this applies only to NCR machines and that at the BPMA or to all machines including Wincor-Nixdorf. I shall be in Inverness on Monday, so will find out first hand what happens there.
More news as we get it, but look out for these at your Post and Go office next week.
