David, I've found those regional 68p stamps plus. I sent a couple emails but no reply yet. Did you still want them?

I think I've made a few good purchases recently.
The 10p narrow value Orange-Brown was only available from the Christian Heritage booklet on pane DP74.





These panes are normally quite expensive - cat value is £32

I found a few on eBay as FDCs that were going for as little as £1.50.

Yes, Puzzler, I do want them - I've just sent an email to you.

AnthonyUK - are there any more of those FDCs on eBay? I'm definitely interested!

I'm late to the party here. Sorry!

Hello, @novato! I too collect Machins, but I am newer to the site than you. My specialties (as I wrote in my intro posting) are socked-on-the-nose examples by postmark, and two kinds of booklets: pictorial decimal machine books and pictorial folded counter books.

I love sorting Machin kiloware -- and as so many people seem to loathe the things, it is very inexpensive.

I have most of the references -- Deegam, the MCC QEII Specialised Definitives Catalogue, Bookmark Catalogue of British Decimal Postage Stamp Books, &c. -- but these days (for budgetary reasons!) I sort primarily for postmarks. When I've had more money, I've purchased booklets in bulk to check for varieties, or (better) scour dealer selections at bourses.

I'm in the process of trying to figure out how to do my next iteration of album pages for the Machins-by-postmark. Maybe I'll make a new post about that topic....

Joshua's post made me remember the online version of the "Connoisseur Catalogue of Machin Stamps" that is available (for the time being) as a series of PDF files online. Click on "Catalogue Index" to see the chapters which are currently available.

I'm not a Machin collector, but that is an awesome online catalog!

I read a few pages and found myself thinking, "hey, I could collect these things; it would be fun"

Guess I didn't heed phil's warning about clicking 'other items'

Nice, another used Machins collector, difficult to find it in this times. I really like enjoy searching on kiloware/lots of Machins, and I put appart on a "little" bag of CDs/SOn, has trying to sort and classify this, but never thinking about make a album, sure would work fine with SOn Machins.

Do you have a book about Postmarks? The new edition go to print on Jan/2011? Want have it, but difficult with the shipping&handling prohibitive to Ecuador.

Anyway welcome to the Forum, and I hope make some trade, had many "boring" commemoratives.

Thank you
FM

I've just had a look at the Connoisseur machin catalogue - awesome! And very well explained, though at so much detail . . .

Novato - you can print out the chapters free at the moment - but this will change once they've got everything working smoothly on the online edition, when they are planning to charge a subscription - so I'd suggest you get a printout of the whole catalogue now!
