More Security Machins for 2011

We now have images of the latest Machin definitives to be found

2nd class Large from Counter Sheets and  1st class from retail books of 12
 


The story so far, and approximate dates of issue/discovery (links to earlier reports):

11 January - 1st class from mixed booklets (Thunderbirds) - M11L - MCIL
- - January - 1st class from Business Sheets - M11L - MBIL
- - January - 2nd class from Business Sheets - M11L - MBIL
- - January - 2nd class from Counter Sheets - M11L - MAIL
- - February - 2nd class Large Counter Sheet - MA10 - MAIL
- - February - 1st class from Counter Sheets - M11L - MAIL
- - February - 1st class Large Counter Sheet - MA11 - MAIL
22 March - 2nd class Large retail booklet - MA11 - MFIL
22 March - 1st class Large retail booklet - MA11 - MFIL
- - March - 2nd class retail booklet of 12 - M11L - MTIL
- - March - 1st class retail booklet of 6 - M11L - MSIL
- - March - 2nd class Large Business Sheets - MA10 - MBIL
- - April - 2nd class Large Counter Sheet - MA11 - MAIL
- - April - 1st class retail booklet of 12 - M11L - MTIL
- - April - 2nd class Large Business Sheets - MA11 - MBIL
- - March/April - Recorded Signed For pair - MA10 - MAIL

Now, by my reckoning, that only leaves the 1st class Large from Business Sheets to be found - and it's only April!

Valued stamps
The new tariff rate stamps have M11L and MAIL security codes - 68p, 76p, £1.10 & £1.65.  The low value definitives (1p, 2p, 5p, 10p, 20p) have no security overprint.


The William Morris prestige stamp book will have 5p, 10p and 50p self-adhesive Machins, so we expect MA11 or M11L with MPIL source code somewhere.

  2. Ian,

    The 2nd class retail booklet of 12 should be M11L, not MA11.
