Dull

This month's finds are not the most exciting or likely to cheer us up on a grey January day. Possibly because things were looking a bit dull on the Machin front, printers had been increasing the brightness of the fluor on stamps for some time and, whatever the reason may have been, I gather that Royal Mail requested they reduce it. So there have been a few stamps issued with what we shall call dull fluor. There, I told you this wasn't that exciting. Even the name is dull.

Here are the ones affected so far:

DLR 1st Large sheet M15L

DLR 2nd  Large sheet M15L

DLR 1st Signed For M15L

DLR £1 sheet M15L

DLR 2nd sheet M15L

DLR 2p sheet M15L


Still, looking on the bright side, these two have bright fluor.

Walsall 1st Large MA15 MBIL 

Walsall 2nd M15L  MBIL


Lastly, there is a new code whith the 2nd blue appearing in strips from rolls of 10,000 and bearing the code M15L MRIL
