I have just been going through some stock of the DY35 / DB5(87) Queen Prestige Stamp Books. Ready to grade them for our new webshop, when I found one copy had a different barcode on the back to all the others.
The original barcode is 5 014721 151854, however, this book has a barcode that ends in 151861. I wonder if this could be the barcode for the postmarked edition sold by Amazon?
Is it hard to see from the image of the back cover but it is a slightly lighter shade than the original book. The front cover also has a rectangular shape in the top right hand corner. The mark is the colour of the original book, and the rest of the cover is the lighter shade of blue.
Apart from the front and rear outer covers, all other parts of the book are the same as the original. With no postmarks or different colour binding tape. The other Amazon Postmarked editions of these books all have postmarks printed in on the stamp panes and a different colour binding tape has been used from the originally released books.
