(page updated: Apr 14/02)
The first Machin stamps (3 values) were issued Jun 5/67. There are 14 pre-decimal values in the small size (20½x24mm) and 4 values in the large size (30½x35mm).
Issue dates shown reflect the first release of that value. See the specialized lists for additional varieties.
(jump to denomination/colour illustrations)
The last 4 values (all large size) are engraved; all other values are photogravure.
All pre-decimal values became obsolete when decimal currency was introduced Feb 15/71.
