Default Soon no new cancelled stamps?

New Zealand Post has stopped canceling stamps on mail — at least
temporarily.

A New Zealand Post spokesperson told Linn’s Sept. 18: “New Zealand Post is
currently trialling some new processes to reduce costs, due to the
accelerating mail volume decline, this includes stopping the cancelling of
stamps by processing machines.”

As for concerns about the not-canceled stamps being reused, the spokesperson
said: “While stamps are not currently being machine postmarked, we do have
processes in place to detect the re-use of stamps and postage included
envelopes.

Other postal authorities have done some of this canccel 'skipping',
notably Great Britain. The result is 'action' by postal clerks to
'cancel' those stamps using ballpoint pens, sharpies or any other
means at hand, including ripping portions of the stamps 'to deface
against fraud'.

Another gummint 'nail in the coffin' of stamp collecting.

This is not about manually damaging the stamps that weren't cancelled by the
standard automatic devices but about somehow marking the stamps as used by a
kind of invisible ink jet spitting device.

You're right about "Another gummint 'nail in the coffin' of stamp
collecting", it's exactly this.

It will open a new collecting era of "Spit or Not Spit stamps". A cheap spit
detecting device (about £199.99) will be sold by Stanley Gibbons to advanced
collectors...

I live in California in the Unite States. Tax and fee payments to both
the federal and state governments are considered paid on time if they
are mailed with cancellations not later than the due date.

I will have a property (real estate) tax payment to my county due on 10
December. As long as the envelope contains a postmark dated 10 December
or earlier, I incur no penalty for a late payment even if the US Postal
Service does not deliver the envelope two weeks later.

If there is no cancellation, how do I prove I mailed the payment on time?

Options include:
Obtaining a 'Proof Of Mailing"
Having the clerk use the counter canceller in your presence.
Sending by tracked means.

If that 'detector' works as well as their watermark detectors ...
ROTFLMAO!

BTW, have you checked a 'black light' on the spit?
Perhaps another usage of Luminol [or similar]?

Sounds to me like cancelling is about the same effort. Then why stop
cancelling normally. Maybe sometning about cancellation dates?

Apparently, the experiment of not cancelling the stamps was cancelled
after a few days. According to a source which I have forgotten in the
meantime, on 8 October 2018 stamp cancellation should have resumed.
