Own one of Britain’s first Decimal stamp errors

In 1972, just a year after Great Britain had made the switch to decimalisation, Royal Mail reissued the £1 Black with a redrawn value.

Thousands of these stamps were originally printed, the vast majority without a hitch. Those that had imperfections were spotted during rigorous production checks and promptly destroyed.

However, on rare occasions, some of these errors slip through the net and when they do they become highly sought after by eagle-eyed dealers and collectors.

Just how such an error could have arisen is a mystery. Whatever the reason, the result is a superb example of a scarce and sought after missing perforation error. One of which can be yours today.

Exclusive collecting opportunity

Your 1972 Machin Imperforate Pair is one of just 200 available. It will come housed in an archive quality Presentation Folder with a Certificate of Authenticity.

Make sure you don't miss out by ordering today.
