Post & Go First Day Cover Forgery

Post And Go Labels are getting so popular with collectors that the first forgeries of First Day Covers are now appearing on Ebay!

As can be seen from the image below – Labels with a very high session number of 7066, issued from the Galleries Machine  have been stamped with a Glasgow ’10’ Double Ring CDS of 8th October 2008.

But- 1) Only low numbers were issued in Bristol on that day and it was a few months before that session number was reached.

2) How did the cover travel from Bristol to Glasgow in the same day?

Wincor-Nixdorf Sucessful Post&Go Live

The first pair of Wincor-Nixdorf Propostal machines sucessfully went live at “The Galleries” branch in Bristol  today, after some inital teething problems and adjustments.

Much interest from around the world has been generated by the UK Post Office adoption of the latest ATM stamp technology as most (if not all) of the labels and faststamps issued on the first day were snapped up by collectors eagly awaiting  the machines introduction.

However, it is undeniable that the new automated self-service will be the quickest and simplest way to send mail and buy stamps in Post&Go branches.

 Customers can purchase labels that can be used immediately or fastsamps that can  taken away for subsequent use.

All customers need do is place their item on the scale and follow the on-screen step-by-step instructions to send their item initally paying with cash with a future option of card payments for transactions over £2.00.
