2011 GB - MS3222 - Arnold Machin Centenary of Birth SS MNH



Issued: 14 September 2011.

Marking the Centenary of the Birth of Arnold Machin, who first designed the new definitive stamps in 1967.

According to Royal Mail this is a "Souvenir Sheet" rather than a "Miniature Sheet", the reason being is that it was issued specifically for Autumn Stampex rather than as a General Issue.

Printed by Walsall in Gravure. The stamps are gummed, with a security overlay but no slits. The source code letters in the overlay is ‘AM’ in a tribute to the sculptor which makes it a unique issue.

AM11 as a special one off for this anniversary.
