The machine was initially  loaded with ‘Xmas Robins’ and Machins. It is expected that the robins will be replaced by the Union Flag in January and then 2nd Class in February.

The overprint in use in both cases is ‘The B.P.M.A.’.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Next Generation Post and Go goes to Scotland

Both machines (A1 and A2) were configured to dispense both ‘Union flag’ and ‘Machin Head’ post and go stamps with a unique overprint:-
