Well Guys n Gals having got my mitts on a copy of the Stanley Gibbons 2011 Concise and the new 2016 Collect British Stamps catalogues I can only say they are both CRAP both stop at the end of the 'X' cat nos. no mention of the 'Y' and 'U' issues soo I'm real glad I have near finished my own specialised Index for my own use, the down side of my purchases taught me a lesson DO NOT BUY EM.

as a footnote ..I now use my own Illustrated SG Index and the Deegam Numbering system which is faultless but then all to their own.

re: SG Machin Stamp Index

Hi Machinhigh,

I'm surprised by your comments about the 2011 SG GB Concise catalogue.

I use the 2010 edition and it has a separate index for Machins with Y numbers, i.e. decimal Machins with elliptical perforations.

It has only a short listing of Machins with U numbers (Machins with security slits) but that's hardly surprising given its publication date.

I use this catalogue as a general GB reference and I don't collect Machins but if I did I would use the 2016 edition.

This is what I used up to 2005 when it came to a dead stop, then the Deegam Bookmark Catalogue was in my possession in 2 bulky volumes which have served me well all but renumbering all of my machins, I now use the same but from a CD and have done a separate Illustrated list with SG numbers in Word yes all 119 pages quite a undertaking but I'm getting there, all in all the Deegam CD catalogue is a definite must for the serious Machin collector unlike SG the Numbering stays constant for each value/stamp this includes variants / phosphor band type ect ect. So my dear friend SG Catalogues for me are expensive for a bunch od pretty pics.
