Looking at the strip on the CPC website makes me wonder if some of the errors that have shown up where a strip of labels has skip printing is a result of the post office testing how to print those labels off since they had to adjust the length of the strip and how many times to print the code on the strip.

The Richmond Hill one is on the east side of Yonge Street just north of Highway 7.

I got a set from Richmond Hill. I wonder if someone would be my shopper for a set from the Edmonton P.O. Many thanks in advance.

I see that Canada Post's offering of an OFDC has the 14-digit code, not the 18-digit code.
It appears, therefore, that the stamps on the OFDC were not in existence on the first day of issue. Miracle!

Does that mean the 18 digit ones are more scarce?

The long code was issued from October 31 (FDI) till November 26 as reported by the Corgi Times and mentioned by BlackJag on page 2 of this topic.
They are the ones going for $100 on eBay as opposed to the short codes which are going for half that.
So, as time goes by, the long codes will be the scarce variety (along with the "11" mark and the two shortened values).
My point was that Canada Post obviously prepared the OFDC's long after the fist day of issue, and back dated them - a philatelic no-no.

I believe the 18 digit code presently has an earliest recorded date of 19 Nov with dates through 25 Nov. Has anyone seen dates earlier than 19 Nov?
I believe the previous kiosk stamps had their FDC done in a similar manner - once again an after thought once they got queries from collectors. While most post office OFDC's are questionable as to when they may have been made or cancelled, these ones are more significant due to the computer date that will be on the label - a kiosk collector should have both the strip and cover in their collection - the strip being a different dispensing format from the machines.

Just a thought - if you pull on the stamps while they are printing out, could this cause a "printing error". And would this be a valid "error" if some of the stamps printed out oddly when this is done???


If you can reach them while they are still being printed, then maybe, but they did that in the US with the first print on demasnd stamps and it sometimes caused the machine to go down, plus everyone knew they were artificially created and thus weren't worth much (many such freaks were made).

Its puzzling why sellers on eBay list the 14 digit kiosk stamps as "rare" when you could print as many as you want if you happen to live in the cities where they are located. The truly rare ones are the ones with the 18 digit serial numbers.

The only other reason the kiosk stamps may become a rarity is if they discontinue the printing of them as they did with the 2012 issue.

It looks like it is a speculated upon new issue due to it being available at only a very few specific locations and it is not known for how long these might be available before some new change is made to them or they are discontinued. This uncertainty adds to its popularity. In essence, these are made to order/print on demand stamps, which if successfully popular, may one day supplement, overtake or replace preprinted stamps.

While looking at those carefully, and comparing the strips of 5 printed by different post offices, it appears that they differ somewhat in the order the vignettes come out. For example, the 1st Vancouver I got shows the Robinson picture on top, thus the "raised lettering " appears on the MacDonald (4th one). In the Richmond Hill, that I got last Saturday, the top vignette is MacDonald, and the raised inscription is on the Lisner stamp. Some new Vancouver ones now show the Emily Carr vignette on top and the Robinson has the raised letters. I would be interested to know if there are strips with the Thompson or the Lisner vignette on top. What it all means: there could be 5 varieties for each value. I am awaiting for the ones I purchased from Canada Post to show up to see which store they belong (first 4 digits) and the order of the vignettes on each strips.

Yeah, I noticed that, too, Gilles le T.
I have 18-digit Robinson on top, 18-digit Carr on top, and 14-digit Lismer on top.
They are all in the same order, so I'd guess that it depends on what starts off the roll - maybe a few get cut off at the start.
