Hello

Machins exist since 1967, Decimals since 1971 and Elliptical 1993 (1994?) do not remember , anyway more than forty years!! So yeah we have a lot, and the Royal Mail change the color and face value when they increase the postal rate. Except for 1st and 2nd, they worth the current postal rate.

Still encourage the people to collect Machins, do not need go more than color/face value, but of course, if do you want more challenge can give the next step

About the free Regional definitive , I like t, but no problem I will wait until you got big lot of Machins too

Found them under the last pile of stamps. So obvious when you look back and say why didn't I look there first?

Emails sent to Londonbus and David King.

Nice thread contribution novato,
I hope SG also lists the stamps that failed their recommendations
otherwise their advice is fraudulent using selective results.
As found in winning horse racing systems.

Fernando:

You're very organized. I admire your collection.

I looked at the Robin Harris site and it is indeed impressive. It's also great that he offers a set of free album pages for Level 1.

Hello

Hey, I pass the Big 50, but I like talk about Machins, so

Well, I post and read and learn more about Machins on the Machin forum.
I ask too many questions and got the answers, now I want add the Machin picture to my posts, but canīt find that Machins

Never I had this problem, I donīt have many stamps until now.
I got too many Machins (and want more ), I put on envelopes/bags/drawers/etc
Have the envelopes with Machin off paper with a label and catalog number.
Have two bags with Regional and CDs, and a chronological shoebox for 1st/2nd , but mostly all Machins back into the bags it come.

So, now I need put labels on the bags, something like

"Worth, look later"
"trash"
"better donīt look into"
"be careful boring commemoratives in there"
"Where is the scanner?"

You are so funny!
Is this because you only collect Machins or were you always this way?
