re: Computer Postage

The description provided by Weeda follows:

Quote:

"VF mint NH set of 4 coil strips of 5, an exciting release from a brand new Canada Post self-serve Experimental Kiosk (only 3 set up in Canada). The computer-generated self-adhesive postage features 5 designs of well-known paintings with printed denominations of "Permanent", $1.20, $1.80 and $2.50.

The other Canada Post self-serve postage experiments were also very little known and have proven to be quite popular after the fact, with one prominent dealer offering upwards of $1,500 per stamp! Set may not be exactly as pictured. Set will be sent by regular lettermail at buyer's risk unless Registered Lettermail is requested for an additional cost."



Here are what the stamps/labels look like:

These are a direct copy of the Great Britain "Post and Go" labels.

For details of these look at the Blog.Norphil.co.uk site.
