The short answer is Yes

The long answer is Yes, and beyond your imagination.

:D Well the rest of us have sold our Grannies to afford as many LBE's as possible! We'll be frantically hitting the refresh button at 10am like demented woodpeckers :lol:

If you bought a 6 LBE season ticket and told Reb you wanted it to start immediately you will be sent 1 of the 10th anniversary LBE's and 1 each of the next 5 LBE issues. However, there are so many goodies and extras mixed in to the 10th anniversary batch that you might want to treat yourself to a couple of extras :wink:

Where abouts are you based? You don't have to be too particular but nearest country would help :wink: Australia is at least one week at the best of times, and I suspect they had one or two envelopes to send out...

If in doubt, call the shop. However when you buy a season ticket, you haven't paid for postage for each of your LBE's. The nice people at the shop usually pop them in with your next order as they become available. So your one is probably sitting in a file waiting for you to order something else... It may even have the ticket for the Golden stamp, or one of the triangle sports in it, as no one has found either of those prizes yet!

Finally managed to get to the shop today and i received a very warm welcome to a soaking wet bloke in a crash helmet :D

Isobelle was very chatty and a wealth of information for a newcomer to the world of stamps and slipped a few extras in for my dedication to travelling through a storm and rain on my bike :thumbr:


Now i'm finally home i need to look at what i have and what on earth i do with my LBE, starter pack and a few extras!
