Repeating Control number from the Rosslyn kiosk!
May 7, 2003
Repeating control number appears at the Baltimore kiosk. An attempt was
made to make a short set. The kiosk ran out printable sheets after the 23c postcard sheets were printed. This partial
short set lacks a 50c, 60c, 70c, 80c and $13.65 sheet. The Kiosk was servicable on May 13. A single short set was
made and all stamp demominations/purchases were verified to have have the repeating control number.
June 3, 2003
Repeating control numbers error was repaired. Normal set of control numbers are being used. Note: Prior
to the correction of this error, I created only a single short set and a long set (also called a grand set - every stamp denomination
and purchase type). To my knowledge this is the only grand error set in existance. A complete inventory of my purchases
during this error period will be released in the future. In addition, only one cover was created with a full sheet (date on
sheet and hand cancel are May 19, 2003). To my knowledge this is the only error sheet on cover (and the first for this stamp).
