As mentioned in our first announcement for these events:
'European Collector Strips' of four stamps (1st Class, Euro 20g/World 10g, Europe 100g and Worldwide 20g) will be introduced for the first time.However, the machines at Sindelfingen dispensed a different Collector Strip, as shown here:
As you can see, the values included in this £4.10 strip are 1st class, 1st Large, Europe 100g - and then Euro20/World10. This excludes the Worldwide 20g and 100g values from the normal 6-stamp strip - but not in the same order!
My enquiries of Royal Mail reveal that they were not aware of this apparent error. However, at the Paris exhibition, the situation had changed and the strips dispensed were of the values originally announced, totalling £4.48:
So for each of the Euro strips sold in Sindelfingen Royal Mail's sales were 38p less than they intended - and they didn't notice!
Perhaps sometime they will also choose a line description that will not over-write the quantity and value on the receipt!
My thanks to Ian P for these pictures.
