The Postal Museum marks the opening of their new exhibition, The Great Train Robbery: Crime and The Post, with Post & Go stamps
LONDON, 30 September 2019 – The Postal Museum has announced today that a special overprint will appear on the Mail Coach design of the Royal Mail Post & Go stamps in celebration of their new temporary exhibition The Great Train Robbery: Crime and The Post.
The Mail Coach stamps of all values will feature a special overprint “New exhibit 2019” and will be available from its Post & Go machine from 11 October 2019. This will replace the present “NPM 50” overprint which will stop on 10 October, as will that overprint on the 1st class Machin commemorative design which will revert to the standard Machin design.
In addition to these Post & Go stamps, a limited-edition pack containing a Collector’s Strip of the Mail by Train designs with the overprint “New exhibit 2019” will go on sale. This strip, available only in the pack and not obtainable from the Post & Go machine, can be purchased in the museum shop or online.
The Post & Go machine is available at The Postal Museum during normal opening hours. Please see www.postalmuseum.org for more information.
The Great Train Robbery: Crime & The Post opens on 11 October 2019 with exciting crime and investigation themed events. See what’s on at www.postalmuseum.org/crime
