20p (17k)Elliptical Perf Machins
(page updated: Feb 18/19)

Elliptical perfs began to appear in 1993. Some Machins exist with "regular" perfs and elliptical perfs while those new values/colours issued after 1993 exist only with elliptical perfs (any rare exceptions?).

Issue dates shown reflect the first elliptical perf release of that value. See the specialized lists for additional varieties.
