The small size stamps were first issued on 9 March 1999 printed by Enschedé of Netherlands.  They were re-issued on 11 April 2000 printed by De La Rue and are still on sale. The Slania die was exhibited at the Stamp Show 2000 held in London last May.  The space where the value appears was a blank rectangle.  This was filled in with the appropriate figures by Inge Madel at Enschedé.   The De La Rue stamps were finished by an unknown engraver at their factory, possibly John Matthews.  

It is difficult to really tell single stamps from the two printers, apart by the way this space was filled. The point is that all four values from both printers used the same Slania die.

The large format NVI stamp was separately engraved by Slania for a pane of four stamps issued as part of the Profile on Print prestige book issued 16 February 1999 as part of the pre-publicity for Stamp Show 2000.  

Because the image on all these stamps was from an engraving, it does not owe its origin to any Machin sculpture.  However, it is believed that a photograph of the Machin head was supplied to Slania for the purpose.
