Machin Singles with Imperforate Sides|
(page updated: Oct 4/03)
A few Machins that come from certain booklets have one or two straight sides (imperforate) rather than being cut down the center of the perforations. Many collectors "hate" stamps with a straight edge and refuse to collect them. However, it is these kind of stamps that prove very easily where they originated from.
There are 8 possible positions available for imperforate sides. However, 2 of these positions have not yet been seen on Machin stamps.
For even more varieties on Machin stamps, check out The Complete Deegam Machin Handbook
(simply the best Machin
handbook available anywhere) by Douglas Myall - click for details.
