Private overprint appears ‘from Salisbury Stamp Show’

Rather suprisingly an ‘unoffical’ overprint of ‘2nd Class Large’ Machins bearing a  Stampex back office code line has appeared as if they originated from the Royal Mail machines at the Salisbury stamp show. However no back office facilities were provided at Salisbury and so really must be viewed as a ‘Private overprint’ produced elsewhere.

As can be seen from the image the ‘overprint’ -‘ Salsibury Stamp Show 2013’ is rather crude and appears to wander from  left to right and up and down between the stamps.

Does anyone have any further information on these ? Email Brian . This seems a rather worrying development from a collectors point of view.
