The Royal Mail issues country definitives (originally: regional definitives) for the four countries in the United Kingdom showing local motives. The first definitives for Scotland were issued in 1958.
The stamp for the international tariff was affixed by myself. After being cancelled at the Edinburgh Post Offce the envelope was put through the normal channels and thus received a second cancellation from the machine in the Edinburgh mail centre.
