Royal Mail Stock Code AV009
Although stated to be from a print run of 10,000 sheets Royal Mail have
verbally confirmed to me that they have not printed 10,000 sheets and this
represents an upper limit for the issue. In practice a smaller number will
have been printed initially - estimated at c. 1000 - 2000 sheets.
