The second retail booklet marking the Queen's 90th birthday is issued on Thursday 9th. Most Post Office branches will not have these on the day of issue which makes life difficult for collectors wanting to prepare first day covers.
Even if you get your booklet from a post office or direct from Tallents House, the latter don't have any blank FDCs left! Post Office branches don't normally sell blanks after the day of issue which in this case was 21 April, so you probably can't get any from Crown Offices or from other post offices which do frequent housekeeping to return or recycle unsold FDCs.
So if any of our customers requires a first day cover like the one attached please get in touch immediately. No more than 9 of these will be available, and the price will be £5 plus postage (they can be included with other, future, orders inclusive of postage). Only this postmark, from Anmer King's Lynn, is available.
