1st + 2nd class Stamp changes coming in next year

Warning over unused 1st and 2nd stamps that will become ‘unusable’ next year

I believe that you will be able to exchange any old ones that you have with the new.

I read on Martin Lewis’s post the Royal Mail will issue a form you post unused stamps to and they will send you replacements. You won’t be able to do it through post offices. Basically the new ones will have barcodes attached so at least when the post office loose your letter you can provide the barcode when it goes missing.

So if you have a collection of these stamps, you have two choices:

  1. Use them.

  2. Swap them.

And you have a year to dispose of them by either means.

What’s the problem?
