Specialised Machins A Complete Set Of Original 1974 Self-adhesives Very Scarce
A superb and complete collection of the first self-adhesive mint decimal machins – these are now very scarce. Derek Worboys and John Daynes, two keen philatelists, submitted an order for octagonal, diestamped machins on self-adhesive paper to Her Majesty’s Stationary Office. The first set was issued on February 10th to coincide with the tenth anniversary of the world’s first self-adhesive stamps (issued by Sierra Leone). They were approved by. The first series with square backing were limited to 1,000 1/2p to 8p (5p + 3p). The second series issued on June 19th 1974 were inscribed with a slogan inscribed’You Just Cannot Lick Self-adhesive Stamps for Speed and Hygiene – a very small number of the 3.5p stamp exist without the slogan (one is included in this collection). A 3p with over-print was also issued and a few sheets of 12 existed without the over-print. Both these incredibly scarce stamps are also included – these first two issues were produced by Derek Worboys. A third issue of 9 stamps with circular backing were issued by John Daynes – again only 1,000 sets were produced and many were used postally or on covers. Aside from these three issues, another octagonal’stamped to order’ letterpress stamp was printed in imperf sheets of 12 on Post Office Gum Impregnated Paper (an invisible gum) – very few complete sheets are still in circulation, making this another extremely scarce item (and it’s also included in this very rare machin collection). Add to that various postally valid, special sheets and a few privately produced, unused covers and this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to acquire this unique, specialised machin collection that forms part of GB postal history.
