Resident Fees

Finland ATM 12.2 sent to Luxembourg for post resident on 9th March. There is another Bluxembourg ATM affixed, value is 14$, cancel on 27th March. The postage 14$ was just for domestic letter.
I guess there are two reason that Luxembourg ATM on it,
1, The addressee pay 14$ for post resident fees when he go to post office to pick up the letter, post office affix the ATM and cancel for apporving that cost.
2, When addressee got the letter from Finland, he affix the Luxembourg ATM and resend it again.

France ATM Nr. 9 sent to Belgium on 25th Aug for post resident. There is postage meter on it with date 5th Sep.

If you know the story which addtional local postage on the letter, please just share with us.

Big Sweden

Above cover has Sweden ATM Nr. 1(Frama; value 0.10 and 2.40) and Nr. 2 value 3.50. I like Sweden stamps because of its sculpture art.

Horse issue in light ink printing.

Ox issue in blurred printing. Left one is normal, right one is blurred from first day issue of philately service.

Cyprus - New font size

Ordered some ATM from Philately Service last month, they present me one fold with above stamp for Christmas, the star shine silver light, very beautiful.
There are 3 font size on Moufflon ATM from Philately Service, Cyprus since several months ago. Above is the minimum one.
They adjusted the vertical distance of dot by thermal print, that make the value more thorter, also the gap is little more small between value and machine number.

But the width of value has no change, machine number has no change.

The right one is normal, another two is new type. I saw the changes at Internet since early Oct. So I think it happend before Sep. 2010.
