Double Head Machins

In 1990, stamps were issued to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the penny black and this design silhouetted Queen Victoria against the standard Machin design, creating the ‘Double Head’ Machin design. During 1990 all stamp booklets were changed to these designs and given the photo / litho printings and the make up of booklets meaning some stamps were issued with imperforate edges, for many years this unit consisted of 32 stamps, but in 2017 Royal Mail put this stamp in the Machin PSB with elliptical perforations in the 20p design (SG2033), so we offer 33 stamps in total.
