Royal Mail Post & Go Faststamps
The original Machin-head Faststamps were issued at Bristol on 8 October 2008, with no philatelic announcement, first day cover, or other products from Royal Mail. The Machines in Post Office branches are provided by Wincor-Nixdorf, and dispense stamps with values expressed as:
1st class - 1st class Large - Europe up to 20g - Worldwide up to 10g - Worldwide up to 20g.
With the introduction of pictorial Faststamps (Birds) on 17 September 2010 the typeface was altered to avoid printing on the picture. Originally this was only at the 30 branches that were selling the Birds stamps, but the software change was gradually extended to the whole network.
This is a single 1st class stamp from Norwich Wincor-Nixdorf machine, Branch code 019136 obtained on 16 September 2010, the day before the Birds stamps were issued.
