My Scott stops earlier than 2020, the year when this stamp was issued.
Does anybody have the Scott number?

Question: Exactly what are those oval perfs supposed to accomplish? Most countries seem to be using them now.

It was done to stop forgeries.

If you go on ebay and look at the 1st Class Machin stamp booklets for sale you will notice that the "elliptical" perfs are not "elliptical" but longer and more rectangular.

Several countries use similar perfs. take a look at some late Portugal, Argentina for example, different but same purpose.

Scott uses the term syncopated for the oblong perforations.

The Deegm number will be DG#1,600.0 And variants will be,
DG#1600.1, DG#1600.2 nd so on, with no immediate need to
consult the handbook itself.
