2019 GB - DY29a - Marvel Iconic Super Heroes LIMITED Edition PB

This is supplied, by Royal Mail, in a padded hinged metal case (see the main image).

DY29a: The Book inside the Padded case.

What makes this book really special is that the Machin Pane is different from that supplied with the standard Prestige Book as it has the "P" of MPIL added to the stamps.
So it has to have been created on a different print run.
