Post and Go Stamps at Autumn Stampex 2014

Royal Mail have at last formaly told us what will be available from Post and Go machines at Stampex.

Kiosk A003:                    Reel A - flag, Reel B - Machin
Kiosk A004 and A005:   Symbolic Flowers / Solo Poppy*

Kiosk JE01:                     A Jersey Flag, B Union Flag

Pre-orders§ from B001   Flag, Machin, Symbolic Flowers, Solo Poppy*
(The Bureau Pack of Symbolic Flowers is printed on machine C001 and all are 1st class.)


*We know from the Philatelic Bulletin that the solo Poppy Post and Go stamp will be available from Post and Go Kiosks from 21 October.

But we now know that it will first be available on 17 September, but only with a  

First World War 
Centenary

additional caption from machines A004 and A005.

§ Pre-orders: from past experience it is likely that stamps from the B machine will not be available on demand at Royal Mail's Stampex counter.   There is a minimum order level of £150 for pre-orders; ask for details.

UPDATE 4 September

Looking at the Jersey Stamps website today I find that they have listed:

Jersey Post & Go Jersey Flag Stampex Autumn 2014 Overprint - Mint Set 


As far as I know, nobody has mentioned an Overprint on the Jersey Flag and the site doesn't indicate what it reads.  This will be sold for 12 months subject to availability.

(Other new output is also listed on the site.)

  1. Will the Jersey Post & Go terminal be dispensing the International air display overprint on there Jersey Flag, or will these only be available from the Broad Street machine in Jersey ?

    1. No information has been provided and in the absence of such I would expect the Air Display to be available in Broad Street only. It's not relevant anywhere else.

  2. Slightly off topic, but may be worth mentioning for those who don’t live in London or haven’t visited recently, you can’t use cash to pay for bus fares anymore. http://www.tfl.gov.uk/modes/buses/cash-free-buses#on-this-page-0

    1. Thank you for mentioning this. I got an email a few weeks ago, but forgot to include that information here. Oyster cards are the best way, of course.

    2. I've been reminded that the older collector, ie many of us, also possess Concessionary Bus passes issued by the Local Authority and these are available on London buses, but not on the Underground.

  3. Presumably the Jersey Flag stamps are not valid for postage in England. How does one get a FDC postmark on a cover with the overprinted Jersey Flag stamps produced at Stampex?
