This sheet has SG number MS3073 but I cannot find any mention in my 2018 SG Concise. SG has a summary list of all ellipticals in denomination order and the 2p deep green litho, printed by Cartor, is not listed. There are other values.

For the original Matthews sheet, it is listed and SG just notes the MS number rather than assign a unique number for each stamp on the sheet (another SG quirk).

I just want to know if it is in the Concise in case I am missing something.

Unable to find a number in the Concise but in the specialised it has the number uG9X, according to the Hampstead Castle website.

In the GB Concise 2017 edition it appears to be # MS3073 -- on page 368.

I don't have a 2018 edition.

Silence in the face of adversity is the father of complicity and collusion, the first cousins of conspiracy..

re: Machin Questions

Don't you just love how SG uses different numbers
for the same stamp, or in this case minisheet?

Yes, that was a rhetorical query,
with a sprinkling of sarcasm.

re: Machin Questions

I finally found it on page 331 in the 2018. It is in the Security Machin section (U prefix) and not the elliptical section (Y prefix),

Interestingly, Page 330 is labeled 2011 Security Machins and page 331 is labeled 2010 Security Machins so sequence is confusing.
