like many other dealers have tried to purchase the latest Machins but haven't got any yet. They are also not in the Post Offices as the postlady has told me that they aren't allowed them until all their old existing stocks are used up. If it was like the 2003 colour change fiasco it will be 3 or 4 months before hey see light of day.

You can buy them from the Philatelic Bureau - mine arrived (finally) and believe it or not they sent me blocks of 8 after telling me they only supply them in 6's ....

My sub-post office had all of them including the HVs by the day of issue - I was told that they had been distributed. Now... whether or not the postmaster could be bothered to take them out of the safe or not is a different matter. I had the same problem in July trying to buy Mythical Creatures in Wales only to find that I had to have Kings & Queens!

Did you order blocks of 8? I used to get blocks of 8 from them so I could create an angled margin, but had to give up after they stopped offering them a la carte.

The postal agencies, Royal Mail as well as the USPS, are the only commercial entities that believe they can make a profit selling from an empty shelf.
.
The USPS is projected to run a $6,000,000,000.oo deficit this fiscal year.
