Post & Go Goes on Tour@London ND11 National Digital Conference

  We are used to the Wincor Post and Go kiosks being used at Stampex , however it now appears that the Post Office like to show their latest equipment at other non-philatelic  shows!  On 11th and 12th May  the 6th National Digital Conference at Old Billingsgate London EC3  took place  see:- http://www.nd11.co.uk/.  The event was promised to be ‘the largest gathering and online participation to date of partners across the UK who want to work together to inspire, encourage and support millions more people online’ and it certainly lived up to expectations in the “Self Service Mails Category” 

On the Post Office stand the various exhibits, including Identity and Information equipment were  pride of place, including a Post and Go machine with a previously unseen office code of ‘699010’, believed to be that of an internal ‘test’ machine. There were various teething problems with the kiosk on the first day (May 11th) and it was late on on the 2nd day (May 12th) before some stamps were forthcoming. A very limited number of covers dated 12th May 2011 (London EC3 Postmark) were serviced as shown. 

 

Font upgrade- Almost complete, but not quite.

The upgrade to the smaller font to all Post and Go machines is complete, but some upgrades have been more successful than others, with some stubbornly refusing to change font. Shown is a example of Cambridge kiosk No.1 with ‘corrupted’ printing, which has been seen at Bristol and other locations.

 

 

New Discovery!-Post and Go stamp security overprint missing!

Whilst looking through some ‘Hytech’ vended Post and Go Stamps I have come across some where the security overprint does not cover the whole of the stamp~there is a discernible and noticable gap at the base of the stamp where the print does not reach the bottom of the stamp.   Upon checking with other dealers they have noticed the same on a handful of stamps purchased at Spring Stampex 2011  and have confirmed that at least one whole strip of five with this error on each stamp exists.

Font upgrade for Post and Go Kiosks starts at Ludgate!

On April 1st 2011, The roll out of the ‘Type 2’ font commenced with the upgrade of Kiosks Nos. 1-3 at the Ludgate Circus ‘Tudor Street’ self-service facility. Shown is a last and first day cover showing the adjacent session numbers of the stamps vended either side of the upgrade. The upgrade have continued throughout this week, with those sites in London not already upgraded to the Type 2 receiving the new font.
