Red Ink on letter

'Letter' ATM is the latest issue from Greece, not sure the specific date. Above print is blue, as we know there should have black and red (for express overprint).
Above 3 ATM have different vertical position, means little bit shift error.
Not sure why arist used red ink not black for the letter while designing.

Bonn Post Tower

Little bit print shift.

No Date Cancel

Most time there is date on the cancellation, but the machine cancelled one ATM only. So I guess postman cancel another ATM by dedicate cancel, without date on it.

ET of Rabit

First cancellation of rabit ATM.

New Dragon

Taiwan will issue Dragon ATM on 18th June for the Dragon Year. It is the second Post which issue ATM for Zodia Year, HongKong had issued Dragon FRAMA on 1988.

First is alway hot, here we call it 'Dragon Head'. This ATM is just the first one of 12 Zodiac Years, believe many collectors like to get some of them even they don't collect ATM. But Zodiac Year stamps are their want.

Above Dragon commemorative stamp was issued early this year.
