Interesting news - don't believe I've seen this topic as yet, an announcement about barcodes being added to all UK definitives, and old definitives being invalid as of Jan 2023.

Link with details below.

Going to impact the face value market in the UK, will we see the same from other countries?

Interesting, but bad news - the first GB stamps to become unusable since decimalisation. The effect on the face value market can only be bad, but will be delayed by the "swap out" scheme once that comes into effect. I wonder whether Royal Mail relaises how much of a short-term liability it's creating for itself?

I hope they don't limit the swop out scheme.
Waiting for the announcement and details
