27th May: Post & Go Union Flag re-issue for the 60th anniversary of the Coronation of HRH Elizabeth II
However, this is not a re-issue with an overprint, it is simply a re-use of the Union Flag stamp to coincide with the Coronation anniversary. But - and there always seems to be a 'but' - there is some confusion over the dates.
Post Office branches with Post and Go machines have been told:
On Tuesday 21 May you will need to change the stamps in your Post and Go machine to the “Union Flag” Post and Go stamps. These are being re-released as part of the Queen’s Coronation Celebrations in June.
They should be used in your Post and Go machines until June 25th when the next set of Pond life (Lakes) series will be issued.
- As this is not a new stamp, no First Day Cover envelopes, First Day Postmarking facilities or Stamp Packs have been issued.
