United States Postage Meter Stamp Catalog

Part 1 and Part 2 cover all stamps generated by stand-alone mechanical and digital meters available to the public. Part 3 covers software-generated stamps (PC stamps), those from public vending machines, and those used only in post offices and restricted to use by the military and other government agencies. Click here to jump to Part 2: [1] and here to jump to Part 3: [2]The United States is the first country to use postage meter stamps on actual mail. In 1897 a small number of public access coin-operated postage franking machines were used experimentally for a few months in New York City. The machines were the product of an Italian inventor, Count Detalmo di Brazza.All stamps have “US POSTAGE” or “UNITED STATES POSTAGE” in the frank.U.S. meter manufacturers:

If not present, the numbers are the same in both catalogs.3) Most recently issued digital stamps (found in Groups M forward) include a 2-dimensional barcode in the design. In the United States three types have been used so far. They are the large rectangular "PDF417", square "Datamatrix", and small rectangular "IBI Lite" barcodes. The listings use these terms in the descriptions. The Datamatrix barcode can vary in size, and the PDF417 barcode can vary in both size and proportions.An additional barcode found as a printable option with many digital stamps is the Facer Identification Mark or "FIM".4) This catalog does not include self-service, public vending machine stamps that do not show a date and town name. These stamps are portable, i.e. they can be carried away and used at any future time and from any location and thus function as traditional adhesive stamps rather than meter stamps. These include “Postal Buddy” and the “Postal Mailing Center” stamps (ECA-Gard, Unisys). See the specialized catalog referenced in Note 1 for information about these issues.

100 examples known. 24 are unaddressed souvenir covers and only five are commercial covers. The rest are cut-outs.
Value: 1¢
Value: 2¢ [Add $50]NOTES:
Fifty reprints in red were made in 1964 for the 50th anniversary of the test. They all have transaction numbers above 90000. [$50]
Eleven proofs in red are known from 1913 and 1919. These have transaction numbers 14990 (1) and 28888 (10). [Very rare, value undetermined]

USPMSC: BA1
B1. Pitney Bowes (FV), December 1920.

They are from unmetered "permit" printers that were in use before meters came into use in December 1920 and continued to be used for several years thereafter. They are not as scarce as Type B1 meter stamps.

== GROUP E: Frameless design with large arcs at top and bottom and with groups of smaller arcs in each corner. Without separate town mark. Printed on imperforate adhesive labels 54 mm x 46/48mm, never directly to covers. Meter numbers: 775, 1000 to 3676, 4200, 4234 and 8049. ==
 All Group E stamps were produced by National Cash Register meter model P-1924(3-3)P-P, a multi-value machine, first used in 1931.
 Stamps are printed in two stages, top and bottom in one stage and center line in another. 
 Most stamps have "Z. Wt." (postal zone of destination, weight) at left center with a line above but occasionally without the line below or missing. Most stamps have a zero above "Z. Wt." but occasionally you will find one with a single or double digit number or "L" (for Local zone) representing the zone or weight or both.
 Colors are usually the same in both stages but are often different. Some colors and color combinations are rare (red-violet, red-violet with red center, purple with blue center, purple with green center, and blue-green with red center).
 Several varieties of label paper were used with shades of brown and gray being very rare. Plain white is also rare.
 Examples without town names are used for registered mail.
 All these stamps are known with portions missing, probably from breakage. This includes the wavy lines in the corners and even the entire top or bottom portions.
