We're getting reports in that some of the London Underground stamps were being sold this morning, seeing that the selvedge on the sheets apparently mentions a first day of issue of 8 January, rather than the official first day of issue, which is supposed to be 9 January.

Apparently, Royal Mail has been informing post offices at 10am this morning that they should postpone the sale of these stamps until tomorrow.

Has anyone been able to get them today?

Or (for those reading this after the eighth), has anyone been able to secure a postmark of the 8th of January?

Best to email - julia (dot) lee@ mytimemedia (dot) com. I'd like to use it in News if that's ok.

I'll put it up for you.

The easiest way to add an image is to start an album, upload it to that, and then use the little camera icon above.

Ken - are you still out there?

Does anyone have an example of the LU stamps postmarked on Jan 8? We'd love to illustrate one!
