Page R2015/16 in the Lighthouse 2017 album pages has space for two Scotland issues: 2nd Class Saltyre and 1st Class Lion, both 2016 2 bands and with Queen's head and face value in grey.

Can anyone please advise the source of these stamps eg counter sheets and the SG number?

Many thanks.

Hi... quick question .. do you really mean 2017 Album pages or 2016?

I don't use these pages myself but I wouldn't expect the pages to for this year to be available until sometime in 2018.

Assuming you do mean 2016 ..

there is a release of a 1st Scottish lion in the :

DB5(69) ~ HM The Queen's 90th Birthday Prestige Booklet (21st April 2016)

and a 2nd Scottish Saltire in the:

DB5(70) ~ The Great War 1916 Prestige Booklet. (21st June 2016)

These may be the items you are looking for.

Hi,
Very many thanks for your replies. I will double check tomorrow but I am sure these will be the two stamps needed. And, yes you are right. I do mean the 2016 Lighthouse pages (as issued in 2017).
Kind regards, Steve

Sometime later. I've only just had time to look at these stamps. Unfortunately, the Scottish Saltire stamp in the Great War 1916 booklet is a 1st Class not a 2nd Class. I now wonder whether "2 bands" is a typo on the Lighthouse page - 2nd Class usually having single band. Can anyone please advise if a 2-band 2nd Class Saltire stamp actually exists?

More generally, this has prompted me to look at other regional issues over the last few years and, certainly in my collection, there seems to be quite a lot of variation in grey vs silver for the Queen's head and value. In quite a few cases, it is far from clear as to which is which.

Are these not the changes to the standard regional where the silver cylinder was replaced by grey?

I believe this can be related to the standard regional sheets, but also agreeing what has been said that the band info is a mistake in the lighthouse album as it should be a single centre band and not two bands.

I'm now actually thinking to apply a small sticker over description on the page to correct it.

FYI - There is a similar mistake on page D5.A where 2.5D red is listed as type 2 and it should be type 1 and this looks to never have been corrected and no response from lighthouse when I emailed them about it.

Very many thanks for all replies - sorry I don't get on the board as often as I would like. I think that's they mystery solved and I will get the small stickers out!
