York Fair – MA13 Machin and Flags make their appearance

19-20th July 2013  and the latest stop on the ‘Post and Go’ world tour brings two Royal Mail Post and Go machines (A3 and A4) to the York Racecourse

Information was released prior to the show that the Post and Go Machin stamps to be used at this event were of the latest ‘MA13’ underprint type.

In addition to these the ‘Union Flag’ Post and Go stamps also have been reprinted and feature the MA13 underprint.

The ‘Union Flag’ type are likely to be particularly scarce where printed by the Hytech machines as the next few outings for these are most likely to feature an overprint (watch this space).

On the first day (Friday 19th) Machine A3 vended Flags and Machin with A4 Freshwater life plus Machin- on the second day (Saturday 20th) this configuration was reversed-  Machine A3 vended Freshwater life plus Machin  with A4 Flags and Machin.

In addition to the Post and Go stamps, as usual ‘Post and Go Smilers’ were available – either generic or customized. Both styles featured the ‘First Image’ Badge – “2013 York Racecourse Stamp and Coin Fair’
