Robin Faststamp 6 November 2012 - MA12 year code.
Royal Mail were asked to provide a Christmas Faststamp for Post and Go Machines. Rather than issue a Post and Go variety of the Christmas stamps or issue a completely new Post and Go design they have decided to reintroduce the Robin Post & Go stamp from Birds 1 originally issued in 2010.
The stamps are printed, for the first time, with a year code of MA12 worked into the background.
From December 3 a Hytech Post and Go machine was installed at the British Postal Museum and Archive.
Initially this is loaded with one roll of Robin and one roll of Machin Faststsmpa which are overprinted 'The B.P.M.A.' when the service indicator is printed.
This is a single 1st class BPMA Robin stamp from December 2012 with the data string
ADGB12 = Type A, December, Great Britain, 2012
