Machin Mart


Booklet panes, 1971 - 1990

with Ron Shanahan

This site is basically for exchange purposes but if anyone wants to exchange information or view a scan of any particular item you can e-mail me.

I started collecting Machins when they were first introduced in 1967 and continued with normal sheet issues, booklets and coils until about 1980. At that time I stopped collecting normal sheet issues and concentrated on booklets only. When the 'window' style booklets were introduced I took the first issue as an example of the new style of booklet but did not collect them thereafter. I now concentrate only on counter and machine vended booklets and prestige booklets. My intention now is to try to complete the booklet pane variations and coil leaders of the period 1971 - 1990.
