Hey guys, just curious on some history here: when did GB stamps start to print "England" stamps, and "Scotland" stamps and whatnot (i.e. the Machins with the symbols in the corner for example)

Questions for the group:

  1. Are there any others (than the Machins) where this is done?
  2. Why was it done, to begin with?

Thanks!

Well thanks Fred! I'd forgotten just how useful Wikipedia has become over the years, although I won't hesitate to check it for basic stuff like "Annie Leibovitz" when I'm online reading a news item or something.

Thanks!

I don't usually charge for information given, but that will cost you a £9 note LOL 😃 Fred.

Oh bother !!!!

I don't collect Swedish stamps, I'll just have to send it back to you once received

The £9 note will be ok though.

Nice gesture Carmen ! Fred.
