Norfolk Island[edit | edit source]

  • A digital Hytech franking machine was installed in the Norfolk Island Post Office in 1997. This was the only meter used on the Island.
  • In July 2016 Norfolk Post ceased operations and the island's postal services were handed over to Australia Post. An EPOS machine that issues Australia Type PO17 stamps is now in service. A stamp from the machine is shown at right. The Hytech machine was removed from service probably at the same time.

1. Hytech (digital), 1997.

Point-of-sale data printed on adhesive labels with “Norfolk / POST” and pine tree design preprinted in black, red and green at left.
At right, under the point-of-sale data, is a negative image of a pine tree against a pale green background.
Point-of-sale data printed in black: transaction number / date / time and ID# / value figures / “NORFOLK ISLAND”. Bar code vertical at right.

NOTE: Although dated, these Post Office counter stamps could be taken away and used at any time just like traditional adhesive postage stamps.

2. Hytech (digital).

Same machine that produced Type 1 but with new label design.

At right, the underprint shows another image of the owl in gray-green against a paler green background.
