In May this year I had reports that a reprint of the 2nd class Post and Go stamps had appeared with a 2015 year code (reported as MA15). I didn't have a picture and overlooked reporting it on the blog with so much else going on at the time.
But already a further reprint has appeared in Norwich's SSKs. These have the new 2nd CLASS in the security printing, and the 2016 year code CL16S
rather than MA16 - well done to the finder for spotting that change! And well done to
Royal Mail Production for keeping us on our toes. Here's an example of a
blank label, click on it to see the coding which is left of centre, 4
large rows down.
And here is the MA15 printing which I omitted to show in May with the previous security printing:
A reminder that the Union Flag stamp should be in and Royal Mail enquiry offices from 1 August and in Post Office branches from 10 August

the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. But don't be surprised if they are still
not there on the new date, as nobody in PO Ltd seem to know anything.
