Post and Go Stamp to Commemorate Penny Black Anniversary
Here's a mock-up of how the BPMA anticpate the issue will look:
On 6th May 2015, in order to mark the 175th anniversary of the Penny Black, the BPMA will issue a special commemorative underprint from its Post & Go machine. Featuring a graphic of the the Maltese Cross, the iconic postmark cancellation used on the world's first adhesive postage stamps, it will be available on the 1st and 2nd class Machin Post & Go stamp designs. The service print will include "The B.P.M.A. / Penny Black 175". This issue will remain available until 7th August.
First Day Covers (FDC) and Presentation Packs will be made available to purchase through the BPMA website, with a special edition First Day Cover also being issued to coincide with Europhilex.
