Well, perhaps 'first' is misleading as we had some in the Alice in Wonderland Retail and Innovative Britain Prestige Books, but these are the first stamps not part of a new issue.
We don't have them yet but some have appeared on ebay. The full list of new counter sheet stamps, which I will show here and list on our shop are as follows:
1p printed 21/01/15 - Norvic 3001.5
2nd class printed 26/02/15 - Norvic 2911.5
1st Signed For printed 25/02/15 - Norvic 2991.5
1st Large Signed For printed 24/02/15 - Norvic 2992.5
£1 printed 13/01/15 - Norvic 3101.5
As £1 is the new Europe 20g Worldwide 10g letter rate it seems likely that the 22/12/14 printing of the 97p was the last and - if properly planned - was large enough to last until the new rate comes into effect at the end of March.
