The Meter Stamp Society,
an APS affiliate, is dedicated to the collection of postage meter
stamps, topical slogans on postage meter stamps, computer postage (CVP),
framas, photostamps and similar items. The Society sponsors a meeting
at national philatelic shows about every 18 months. The latest meeting was at StampShow
2013 in Milwukee.
The MSS is an non-profit organization and an
eBay Giving Works
member. Sell an item on eBay and donate a portion (up to 100%)
of the proceeds to the MSS as tax deductable donation.

Canadian Vending Kiosks Removed
The trial for the WincorNixdorf
vending machines in a number of post offices and commercial
stores in Canada ended during the first week of August 2013. All
the machines were removed from their locations. See our News Page.
UK Wincor-Nixdof and Hytech
McCallum of the UK has prepared the 90 page Wincor-Nixdorf and
Hytech ATM Stamps catalog 1st edition. While the Wincor-Nixdorf
kiosks were not successful in Canada they are still very
successful in the UK. This catalog provides images of the
Wincor-Nixdorf and Hytech kiosk ATM stamps as well as the
machines themselves. See our Library.
APC Kiosk Forever Stamps
In the next few months the
USPS will revamp the APC kiosks found in more than 2700 US post
offices. The major change will be the return of the preprinted
ATM stamp booklet. We are also told that there will be just one
print-on-demand stamp and it will probably be in color like the
Christmas stamp last year. This may happen in October.
Watch here for any updates.

printed by the vendor and mailed to the user. These stamps are
used very much like normal stamps. In the US all of these stamps
have some form of IBI (intelligent barcode indicia) barcode.

lots of work. If you have information that we can add to
