Hi,
I'm reposting this after the recent outage.
Could someone confirm the following please.
I have started a basic Machin collection using the free Robin Harris printable pages.
A few people have mentioned the difficulty in finding the above mentioned item in kiloware and I have yet to find any so I looked for alternative sources.
I think from what I have read that this machin was only available in the Christian Heritage booklet on pane DP74.
This booklet is quite expensive in total at 32 CV so as an alternative I found this pane as an FDC for approx. 1.50 each so I bought a few.
Is this an OK source for the collection and is it worth removing the pane from the cover at this price?

Anthony,
Remember the first rule of stamping.
.
Collect what you enjoy collecting the way you enjoy doing so. .
If you like the pane, then yes it is "okay".
Personally I would prefer postally used for my albums but as you have surmised many of these panes were never used on regular mail so a FDC is the only way to obtain cancelled copies.
.
I have a friend in the UK who on occasion sends me a copy of the Gibbons magazine and he always tries to use full panes to cover the postage, often several at a time. But I would not expect him to break up a booklet that cost anywhere near 32.00 to use for such postage.
.
So if I obtained the FDC in an auction at such a good price, I would certainly remove it from the cover. But that is me, playing with my collection and you have to decide for yourself.
.
You say you bought a few ? Do you want to part with one ? Either on the cover or trimmed around the pane to facilitate mailing. Or trade for a similar pane from a FDC also.

If you are interested in a trade I can send you my wants list and perhaps you can help me fill some of the spaces Very Happy

I'm with Charlie - at worst it will fill a space until you find a postally used substitute (if you ever do).

The only difference is if I had more than one of these I would file both the pane and a "connected horizontal pair" (with the 17p) so that he source is obvious - but that is MY collecting choice.

Thanks Dave.
That is a useful point about keeping as a partial pane strip.

With the number of Scottish Pictorials found in booklets and sheets; my choice is to carefully remove the stamp of interest with sufficient of the pane/sheet background, that way the source is readily identifiable.

Alex.
