Hastings Old Town “Essentials” Post and Go kiosk is on the move..

. . Thanks to a correspondent to this blog, who has reported that the Post and Go kiosk installed at the Premier store at Hastings, Old Town in 2008 was this week removed for  installation in ‘pastures new’ In latter times it appeared to be rather ‘unloved’ hidden behind some crisp boxes and rather under utilised~ This is a great shame as the mantra here obviously is ‘use it or lose it’ and it appears that the good citizens of Hastings, Old Town have lost their machine. It just remains to be seen where this particular kiosk ‘resurfaces’- watch this space.

London treasure hunt provides fruitful for Faststamp collectors!

Many faststamp/ATM collectors took the opportunity to visit the various ‘upgraded’ Post and Go Locations  across central London today,  with impressive results. Firstly the Post and Go self-serve facility at Ludgate/Tudor Street provided an unannounced source of pictorial Faststamps having been provided by the Post Office for dealers to obtain large quantities of labels, without impacting other ‘usual’ customers (Ludgate has four Post and Go kiosks and so has capacity for such a facility).

However, much more spectacularly the ‘No 1 ‘ kiosk at the City Of London branch office provided an opportunity to obtain examples of labels where the software upgrade had not been applied successfully and even corrupted the overprint producing a stunning ‘missing  weight’ variant.

Birds Faststamps fly at Stampex

The first pictorial “faststamps” went live today at Stampex as well as 31 other Offices and proved to be very popular with collectors both old and new.

A queue formed early on at the Post & Go machine at Stampex and continued for most of the day. European dealers flew in specially for the event and purchased the maximum possible within their 15 min allocated slot. Some collectors were slightly puzzled by the options available to them, as the Royal Mail literature had only offered the 1st Class  preprinted variants via mail order , so many believed that this was also the only option available to them from the kiosk , were but soon got the hang of things  when assisted by fellow collectors and staff. A big success!

Another step taken in the introduction of Machin gold Imperforate Labels

Yesterday (Sept 13th)  was the first day of sale for the much anticipated  new Gold Imperforate Horizon labels in Chesterfield.. A first day cover is shown ..

The next stage is believed to be their introduction in Wales..
