Another tariff day, another dollar
New NVI and OV stamps plus a Horizon label
Monday 30th March 2015 – ‘Tariff Day’ , the day that Royal Mail change their prices. Some up and some down -including some significant drops in the Medium Parcel rates and penny or increases so most other rates.
One of the main changes to interest to collectors is related to the introduction of a new international ‘Large Letter’ size and related increases to the international weight bands for Letters.
But what does this mean to collectors of Postagelabels and Post and Go Stamps ?
With the demise of the Wincor-Nixdorf Post and Go we are left with the NCR units in the Post Office network plus the IAR units in Royal Mail operational and fixed ‘Philatelic’ locations.
NCR and IAR NVI Stamps
These have been updated to include the two new “100g Letter’ stamps for the new weight bands (replacing the previous 60g step). The collectors set has been updated accordingly.
NCR OV Stamps
To reflect the introduction of the new International Large Letter size, new Large Letter text has been added to create new OV stamps as applicable.
These appear with a ‘LgLetter’ description and are available in the A, IS, IT and ITS versions.
Our catalogue has been updated accordingly. Please ask for a copy.
One Horizon label has been updated. For details of this change watch this space.
