The issue of the final 'Classic Locomotives' miniature sheet was accompanied by a Prestige Stamp Book (Class Locomotives of the UK) containing some stamps from each of the nations, and a definitive pane. The pane contains 1st class country definitives and 2 each of the 2p and 5p Machin definitives.
This is a single 5p brown stamp from the prestige book pane 4, coded M13L MPIL this is on conventional gummed paper so there are no security cuts. The iridescent printing does not show well and the coding is difficult to see. Printed by Enschede, as was the Merchant Navy book, this stamp has the elliptical perforation in the conventional place.
