That metallic stamp is good fun. Would it be some sort of first, as a few others have followed?

We do have these two varieties of the Elizabeth tower stamps at Reply #146

I  have one of the thin uniface type and three with the union flag reverse and quite a bit thicker; if these were really gold....
