Well, the real beginning of the Machin collection started today with the receipt of all of these stamps. All are different, there isn't a duplicate in the bunch. Because I am including pictures... of course.
I have a few others that I have gotten recently, as well, but this is the true beginning.
Any others out there that are foolish enough to delve into this subset of the UK postal collections.
The souvenier sheet is a gift from a VERY nice gentleman in the UK that posts on another board I am on. I commented on his avatar (this sheet) and mentioned I just lost out on an auction for that item. He offered to send me one for free!
Now ain't this interesting? I too am about to start the Machin journey. I'd never intended to be a Machin collector but I'm STILL sorting through some Bear Boxes and these things keep popping up again... and again... and again... and again until finally when sorting I have a pile "UK" and another pile "Machin". Too many to ignore.
I'll be bookmarking this thread for reference! Thanks for sharing.
Thanks, Kacyds! At present my Machins are in a large glassine envelope as I'm plucking them from kiloware - I'm still going through and getting lots of Machins from the Bear Boxes of a few years back. Sorting is at a temporary standstill as the room where I tend to do my stamping is currently used as basically a storage locker until my friend's apartment is rebuilt after being flooded. For now I'm only working on what I can get to - USA.
I'm ready to have my quiet, solitary, bachelor like life back!
