We can now show the latest 6 x 1st class retail booklet which will be issued to Post Office branches and other retail outlets to replace the Olympic definitive booklets which were reintroduced in some places during the summer. The official release date is 1 October.
The booklet is printed by Walsall Security Printers, with cylinder numbers W1 blue, phosphor, and iridescent in that order. The source code is MSND to the right of the Queen's head.
Cylinder booklets appear to be hard to find in initial stocks.
Close up of the coding on the stamps, thanks to Chris and Richard:
We will obtain a few first day covers for these new definitive stamps.
UPDATE 29 Oct, from the comments attached:
I was able to order this from Talents House with no problems. The order code is UB355.
We have a very small number of First Day Covers for these on sale now. If when you click on this link there is no entry on our shop, that means they are all sold - SORRY!
