As you can imagine, registered dealers have a close relationship with Royal Mail when it comes to news and information about new issues. This is why we know - and have known since Spring Stampex in February - the design of the new miniature sheet and hence the similar PSB pane and retail booklet.
So you can imagine that those who are playing by the rules and complying with the embargos that have been put in place, get a tad teed off when the designs appear early, as happened with The Irish Times for the Long To Reign issue.
Now we find that the first retail booklet has appeared on auction site eBay. Don't expect it to be there by the time you read this though: Royal Mail will probably find it and take action.
But come back here on Wednesday morning, as the embargo date has been brought forward by 24 hours and the pictures will be here from 2am on 20th April.
This is especially useful for me, as we will be taking a break and the office will be closed from Wednesday 20th through to 27th. All orders will be reserved as usual and will be dealt with as soon as possible on our return.
