Maple Leaf

It is Canada ATM FDC, the only ATM Canada Post issued.

But it is not just ATM we mentioned usually. Supposed it is coming from Auto Tell Machine, not Automatenmarken. Because the face value is not printed by the onsite machine, when customer want to buy it.

Thanks Leung!

AUSTRALIA 99 Olympic Day

The ATM issued for event 'AUSTRALIA 99' on Mar. 19th, 1999, overprint one label 'tiwi jilamara'.
Interesting it implement this label for special event ATM overprint, not normal ATM issue. Usually Authorize use current ATM label to overprint special words to celebrate the event, not use brand new design label.

The commemorative cancellation is for Olympic Day (Mar. 22th) during the event.

Thanks Leung!

 Here is getting deep winter, and very cold in the northern hemisphere. Let us contact summer thru the stamp.

This Spanish ATM is from paint 'El Verano', means Summer.

All the 3 ATMs have extra overprint to celebrate the 650 anniversary of Corpus Christi procession at Valencia.

The mint label 'Milord 1900' got the same overprint. Some of words is invisible because of dark background.

It is my first time to see the overprint, very interesting.

Arctic Animals

Issued on 2011 from Greenland for Arctic animals, Walrus, Musk Oxen, White-tailed Eagle, Polar Bear. 
There are two types of fonts, thin/narrow and fat/wide.

Thanks Peter!

Special Error from UK

All the fonts should be small on the Machin faststamp from machine at Bristol. But the words 'Up to 10g' is still large font, very interesting errors, how the program make it.
Another error is serial number, there is big gap between  first 6 digits and the 7th.

As we know the large font was end of life since the first animal issued on 2010. But sometimes, collectors still can get large font on faststamps. Obviosly the serial number had overlay, on postage rate 'Worldwide Up to 10g' it missing 'Up to 10g'. The another interesting error is label 'Worldwide Up to 40g', the text 'Up to 40g' is small font, different from others. When Royal Mail initiate the Post & Go service several years ago, there is no rate 'Worldwide Up to 40g', so if customer want to get this rate and in chance system loads large fonts, it can print small fonts for this type.

Union Flag had the same erros as Machin.

Pig and Cattle issues used wrong font, it is large type, should be small. And overlay serial number.

This Cattle(Highland) issue have same errors as above Pig, and more it missing text 'Up to 10g' under 'Worldwide'.

Robin for Christmas

Royal Mail issued special Robin faststamp for Christmas on Nov. 6th. As we know, the motif comes from the faststamp of 2010. But it made a little bit modification on pattern. All the faststamps' pattern are consist of text 'ROYALMAIL', this time it changed one letter 'L' to digital '2', could be 'ROYALMAI2'.
Due to printing lot deviation, the Robin has a little bit color deviation. You can see, the fruits are close to purple, not rose red like belore.

Above scan comes from machine Wincor-Nixdorf. Learnt it have Hytech version on Camden Christmas Post Shop in London.
Thanks Peter!
