Issued 27 March 2013 - using the new branding ROYAL MAIL SIGNED FOR, replacing RECORDED SIGNED FOR.
1st class orange and yellow Machin security definitive stamp from counter sheet.
Printed by De La Rue at Gateshead, with no printing date or sheet numbers.
In the winter of 2012/13 DLR moved their production from Dunstable to Gateshead. So far we do not know whether the omission of the ink-jetted printing date and sheet number is a permanent feature, or whether these elements will reappear on later printings. For that reason 'no-date' blocks at the lower right, are offered.
With 2013 security code MA13
Single & multiples *
cylinder block of 6
Sg catalogue number U2983a
* Note the picture of the single stamp is a publicity picture not the actual stamp.
