1994-98 Automatic Teller Machines Sheetlets Trial Printing with Stylised Kangaroo Facing Left 45c ACSC #1784E(1) single in pale green, green & copper tied by Gold Coast Mail Centre slogan cancel of 6/MA/1997 to commercial cover to Sydney. [On the subsequently issued stamps, the Kangaroo faced right].
This was a special issue specifically for the short-lived Advance Bank. Trial Sheetlets of 20 incorporating eight different colour combinations were used for testing in the Bank's Sydney ATMs, after which a small quantity were retained instead of being returned to Sprintpak. Only two other usages on cover, across the eight different colour combinations, are noted in the ACSC. In 2002, these were priced at $750 each. In the intervening 18 years we have seen very few additional examples on cover. An excellent challenge would be to acquire a full set of the 8 different stamps on commercial covers. Good luck!
