Hi All,

I have a question that I am sure is silly, but I am having difficulty finding answers on. In beginning to resort my machin collection, I have come across what I think is a sheet from a Prestige Book, of the white embossed NVI 1st Machin, but the sheet is marked as "Stamp '99". I can't find reference to it in the Minisheet section of SG, so I assume it's page from a PB.

Any help would be great!

Regards,
Scott

Any chance you could post a scan to make it easier to identify?

I'm thinking it is probably the "Profile on Print" booklet issued 1999. (DX 22)
SG 2077 which appears on page 350 of the 2017 concise.
A pane of 4 with margins all round, die cut perfs.

From the Complete Deegam Machin Handbook; Embossed 1st NVI 1999

" .... DP281
Printed by Walsall and issued 16 February 1999 in the `Profile on Print’ prestige
book. Plate numbers for the value and phosphor (which were printed in lithography)
are unknown. The A2B phosphor was printed over the background around the
embossed head. The pane is self-adhesive and is now listed as SAP8 in appendix 4."

Thanks! I think that's it. I can't get a picture with my phone to load, I'll have to work on that.

Thanks again, I assume the sheet was just overprinted as a souvenir available at the show.
