Following the issue of the Royal Mail red series of stamps on 3 January (with 2012 year codes) we reported the sale of the 1st class booklet of 6, and the 2nd class booklet of 12 with M13L codes.
As reported last week, the new tariff stamps have MA13 codes, except for the Walsall printing of the specific valued stamps which have M13L. Apparently all should have had M13L but for some reason De La Rue used cylinders with MA13 on.
Late last week came the discover of two more M13L/MA13 stamps. The 2nd class Business Sheet M13L was first discovered in used condition (so remember to look at all your incoming post, carefully!), and then the £1.28 sheet stamp was found from a new De La Rue MA13 printing with no date or sheet numbers. (Thanks again to Richard P for these images.)
UPDATE: De La Rue's printing of the £1.88 has now been found, still with no sheet number or date.
