New 12 x 1st Machin book has reset cover


Thanks to Richard P for pictures of a new setting of the cover of the 1st class booklet of 12.

At first it looks as if the printing has shifted to the left, the figure 1 being cut by the fold. But a measurement of the gap between the upright of the 1 and the edge of the colon (to:) on the back reveals a reduction of about 6mm. (I don't have the actual booklets but an onscreen measurement reveals a reduction of about 37%.)

I'm told these books come from a new printing from cylinder W5 and are available in post offices now.
