Post Office Fresh MNH set of Computer Vended Postage 'kiosk' stamp panes of 5 different designs from 2016, of all four denominations current at the time (Permanent, $1.20, $1.80 and $2.50), plus 3 error strips as dispensed by the machine. Strips have the Vancouver post office code 105341 at the beginning of the digit string. The error strips have been carefully set aside since the original purchase more than 5 years ago, with the top 3 stamps of $1.20 misplaced with 2 stuck in perfect alignment to the right on one strip, miscut strip of 4 and a half stamps of $1.80 (obviously this could be faked but this is a genuine kiosk error), and short strip of 4 with the top label blank. On the back side of the $1.80 strip of 4 is a spot of adhesive glue (which is why the glassine is backing it) which could mean that the stamps were from the end of the roll and thus an error occurred in the printing. Errors on this first issue of these kiosk stamps were wildly popular in the secondary market from a very early stage and we wouldn't be surprised if a detailed study were to be published in the future.
