2020. 🇬🇧 Penny Black Stamp Also Barcoded.


New issues

🇬🇧 Royal Mail -

? 1 February 2022 - Penny Black self-adhesive definitive-sized stamp with barcode sold in booklets of 4. A surprise item featured on publicity from Buckingham Covers with a first date of issue postmark of 1.2.2022. This item is not yet featured on the Royal Mail Collectables internet site so it may be that its date of issue has been put back from that which Buckingham Covers were first expecting but knowledge of the date change may have come too late to alter the illustration. Interesting. Rating:- ****.

4 April 2022 - Machin Head definitives with barcodes - 1p, 2p, 5p, 10p, 20p, 50p, £1, £2, £3 and £5 values.

🇬🇬 Guernsey Post - 

4 February 2022 - Issue inscribed ‘Alderney’ - Platinum Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II - Black and white versions of the six ordinary commemorative stamps not offered for sale but one random example distributed with each ordinary set purchased. This daft idea means that any collector wanting to acquire a complete set of the products must ‘swap’ with other collectors or, more likely, buy them at inflated prices from various people offering them for sale.

5 February 2022 - 50th anniversary of ICRISAT (International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-arid Tropics) - 1 stamp. Rating:- ***.

  1. The 1d black booklet is product UB540 which standing order collectors and dealers have been told is delayed until a date to be determined.

    Any booklets already sent to dealers were recalled.
