The one on the right is a New Zealand Postal Fiscal.
"New Zealand" is in very small print at the base of the stamp.

Your yellow GB Machin was issued on 17th August 1993. I do not have Scott number. Printed by Enschede it should have two phosphor bands. You need to check because there is a less likely other possibility. (Harrison, Coil)

The stamp on the left is part of the long-running Machin series.

If you’re using the Scott catalogue as a reference tool, the Machin stamps have their own numbering system starting with the MH prefix. You’ll find these stamps listed after the “regular” Great Britain postal issues.

If this is a litho printing,it could be from National Trust prestige booklet,printed by Questa.Gibbons Y1778

Anglobob........I think the postmark came before the National Trust booklet ! But I do not have the latter in my catalogue which is a bit odd.

If the 35p is gravure, it is Scott MH222 and litho (booklet) it is Scott MH223.
