In 2006 April, the Post Danmark announced a pilot of new franking labels. The test commenced on 7 th June 2006 with a machine installed in the Philatelic Service. The franking label are printed on self-adhesive thermal labels and total 3 different Danmark landscapes in a continuous pattern on the rolls.
Besides the face value, the machine prints a 11-digital control number in the right lower corner label.
My photo shows 3 X 10-strip fm the digital number 02S09N1RD01-RD0A, 02S09N1RE01-RE0A, & 02S09N1RF01-RF0A (I guess the last two number 0A=10)
The other photo shows a Cover with first day cancel (2006.06.07) circullated to Holland.

The Macau post increased the postage rate fm 1st Jan 2006: the local postage rate is increased fm $1 to $1.5; the postage to Hong Kong & China is increased fm $2 to $2.5. Because of the large demand, all the $0.5 stamp is sold out. The Macau Post decide to print out some $0.5 Klussendorf & Nagler Labels for urgent use...
This imagine shows the different between the label Macau Post print and the label obtained fm the local vending machine:
Some Klussendorf label printed by the Macua Post is "***.5" , which is different with the current "**0.5" label obtained fm the local vending machines.
