Last Machin but not least , the 1st class book of 6 has appeared.

The last of the expected new printings of definitive booklets - the 1s class book of six with MSIL M20L coding has now appeared.

My thanks to Chris who has sent a copy for publication.


"First sighting of the missing £4.56 Booklet M20L MSIL in the Watford area."

Also found elsewhere now 'in a large supermarket' (for those who aren't avoiding them).  Packaging date confirmed as 10/06/2020.

  3. Just as a matter of interest in case I've missed anything on the check list - Have the following Machins been issued or reported with year code 20? The 50p; £1; Business Sheets (Large) 2nd and 1st; 2nd Class Post & Go Machin. Thanks to all contributors, much appreciated when still in at risk in lockdown category awaiting hospital admission.

    1. The list needs an update, again, Doug. No 50p & £1, and P&G is not included in the list but I don't think it has been seen.

  4. The 6x1st M20L appeared on eBay late last night: item number 264893501218, although there are only a small number of singles still left.

    Some related information on the earlier backing paper question: 6x1st booklets with M19L but the whiter backing paper first appeared on eBay a couple of weeks ago. The vendor mentions a 13 March 2020 pack date. eBay item number is 313251585762

  5. Doug (Enfield) I collect P&G & can assure you that the 2nd class for year code CL20S has not appeared yet.

  6. Waltham Cross Shopping Pavilion has a W H Smiths with P.O. counter and next door is Sainsburys. P.O. only has old stock, whereas the Sainsburys has had the new "20" books for a while. Packaging date unknown as books in elastic band with no wrapper. Doug (Enfield)

  7. 1st large business sheet M20L MBIL turned up from Royal Mail direct. Date 23/09/20. SBP2i backing paper. The wavy line Royal Mail background is very difficult to read.
