"Stamps that say '1st' or '2nd' class are going to become unusable from 31 January 2023"

Recommended Posts

"Royal Mail is shaking up the rules on stamps, so if you've got a stash with the Queen's head on them that say '1st' or '2nd' class, or any other price – or they're Christmas-themed – then by 31 January 2023 you'll no longer be able to simply stick 'em on a letter and use them. That's because Royal Mail is moving to a new system using barcodes, which those stamps don't have on them."

Just had a peek on the Royal Mail website.They have extended the cut off date. 

"Regular stamps without a barcode* will no longer be valid after 31 July 2023. This follows the introduction of a 6 month grace period from the initial 31 January deadline. You can either use up your non-barcoded stamps before this new deadline or swap them for the new barcoded ones."
