Default NR Tickets from LU touchscreen Ticket machines

I have noticed that you can purchase a ticket from my local LU station
in Zone 5 to Peterborough, a single is about 19.?? quid.

What type of ticket is this? Is it printed on a NR ticket or an LU
ticket?

Also can it be used on FCC or NXEC?

when will LU implement joint up thinking as it is such a paid buying
my 4.80 t/c from the ticket office.

I once bought a London Terminals-Sevenoaks single from the LU machine
at London Bridge, when there were massive queues at all the machines
upstairs. It's printed on standard LU stock (though it says NOT
UNDERGROUND or something similar). The gripper passed it without a
second glance, and it worked the ticket barriers at both ends. I
presume it's a hangover from NSE days (when the Multifare machines
with the hundreds of buttons had a couple of columns, coloured purple
IIRC, with certain popular NSE destinations on them).

One of the few advantages of living off the tube but in 'the zones' is
that Southeastern's touchscreen machines will sell you the railcard
discounted travelcard!

ISTR LU fare lists showing various "exotic" destinations long before
NSE was invented.
