As economic pressure builds on postal systems, countries are stepping into the 21st century and automating (i.e., cutting facilities and manpower) to become more cost-efficient. Many countries allow private couriers for letter mail, but many more are turning to computer-vended postage, where customers can serve themselves by buying and posting exactly the stamp/label they need...whether they are at the airport, a mall or a local pharmacy.

Most collectors hate them, but technology is not turning back, and they are not going away. In fact, you might even see more of these in the USA in coming years.

So, let's see what you have, including items from distant places such as Pitcairn Islands (yes they issued one) or New Caledonia, very high values, freaks, plate flaws, or whatever.

I will start with some recent computer-vended stamps from Costa Rica. Note that the last 2 stamps have 2 "mirror image image" style "C" security cuts and 2 additional, small diagonal security cuts on the left and right sides. The first 2 (earlier) labels have only the Spanish style, single "C" security cut.

Nice postings. The Argentinians are Michel #1 from 27 December 1995. Michel describes these as "Leerfeld", meaning that they were not processed/printed with a value by dot matrix. These are actually quite a bit pricier when they have the value printed...350 euros mint, and unpriced as used. The Leerfelds are priced at 20 euros each. 1.5 million of the unvalued labels were printed.

The Israelis are printed on the French "Amiel" equipment. Portugal, the Czech Republic, have used this equipment/format also.

Here are some earlier Costa Ricans. All of these are printed in the Epelsa Corp.(Spain) format, with a large "C" shaped security die cut in the middle of the label. Information given is from Michel Automatenmarken-Spezial 2008/2009, so details on the last 2 are unknown to me. Numbers reflect number of blank labels printed rather than actual number of stamps/labels valued and sold.

1.) 7/16/02 Manzanillo Beach, 4.48 million
2.) 9/24/2003 Red-Eyed Tree Frog, 2.85 million
3.) 2/2004 Scuba Diving, 2.85 million
4.) 11/2004 Aranal Volcano, 2,827,200
5.) 4/2005 Irazu Volcano, 2,872,800
6.) 5/2005 Poison Dart Frog, 2,872,800
7.)2/2008 Drover
8.) 2010 Gulf of Papagayo
9.)2010 Olive Ridley Sea Turtle
