If you are new to Machin collecting and are looking for a simplified way to sort and organize your accumulation, here is a free 32-page PDF (Adobe Acrobat Reader required) that provides 26+ sorting criteria.
Use this document as a guide to sorting your Machins to whatever level of specialization that you want.
A free "basic" set of album pages (PDF) is also available for download. For other types of album pages, click here.
Note: If you are mounting mint self-adhesive Machins with the original backing paper, do *not* cut the backing paper to fit any album spaces; always cut your mount to fit the original sized Machin stamp with backing paper.
I have given Zoom presentations using my Simplifying the Machins guide on a few occasions.
A talk to the Owen Sound stamp club on April 21, 2021 was recorded, which you can view/download below.
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.
