CY1 / DB5(100) Dame Shirley Bassey Prestige Stamp Book

On 21 September 2023 Royal Mail released the third Prestige Stamp Book of 2023 entitled Dame Shirley Bassey – CY1 / DB5(100). See images below. Priced at £22.50 it is the first Prestige Book to include King Charles III definitives and also with the Kings head on the commemorative stamps.

All of the definitive stamps in Pane 4 / DP633 have security codes of MPIL / M23L. The stamps and the two labels are self-adhesive and is printed in lithography by Cartor.

What was a surprise when the book was received from Royal Mail is that Pane 3 / DP632, in addition to Pane 4 / DP633, is also self-adhesive. This is not the first time that Royal Mail has made an error when announcing to Stamp Dealers ahead of the launch date. As ‘Key News’ issued to Key Account customers that the only Pane 4 / DP633 was going to be self-adhesive.
