A meter stamp used by firms. No financial value, I'm afraid. Try taking some decent photos or scans of the earlier material and posting it - people here will give you some idea of its worth.

I recently inherited my grandfathers collection of stamps and covers including this signed cover with sheet of six "Little America" Byrd Expedition 2 stamps and enclosed typed and signed letter. I am just trying to value it at the moment. Can anyone help? Thanks!

I inherited a collection of UK machin's and it looks very comprehensive and would like to continue with collecting.However I am struggling to find information on "U" numers and the lettered sub sections within them ie. U123a or 123h with a ref to what it is sometimes,there does seem to be a large gap on info either with Stanley Gibbons or sellers with regard to this topic.Is there anywhere I can go to get a complete list of Machin "U" references,thanks in advance.

The U numbers are the numbers used in the Stanley Gibbons Great Britain Specialised Catalogue, Volume 4 (Queen Elizabeth II decimal issues). This has now two parts.

Hi Bushyboy. Not sure how much previous experience you have of stamp collecting, but Machin collections can get into very advanced territory, such as identifying varieties based on the appearance of the Queen's hair curls, gum types, even the thickness of bits of the numerals and so on.

If you're starting out, you may find it unfathomable. But don't be put off - a basic Machin collection is great fun, and you may want to start your own. This site is useful: https://adminware.ca/machin.htm

of course, if you know about stamps and collecting generally, ignore this post!
