Wonder Colour Gauge, With Index and Original Package: A classic printed gauge / guide distributed by the Meghrig company back in the 1950s or early 1960s. Complete set of five cards, plus an index card, intended to represent the range of about 120 typical stamp colors (i.e. it includes colors like "lake"). Still in the original package! Please remember that printed (instead of ink chip) color guides are the combination of one editors opinion and perception of color combined with the quality of the printing process used to make the guide. Furthermore, the names of colors differ from one catalog to another and the perception of actual stamp colors differs from one person to another. This kind of guide can be useful, but nothing replaces comparing to confirmed examples of actual stamps. This is also a great and attractive item from the "history of philately" -- which is a lot of fun to collect itself. Quite scarce in such nice, brand-new condition.

Stanley Gibbons Stamp Colour Key: Color key with 200 different colors that Stanley Gibbons endeavors to use in their catalog color naming / description scheme. Though this example bears a 1973 copyright date, based on the collection it came from, the style of the holder, and the excellent condition of the padded plastic holder, I suspect that it was purchased new in the 1990s. It fits easily into the pocket with the "pages" on a pivot at one end. Each color is printed edge-to-edge as well as has a hole punched in the center so that you can place it over a stamp in any way that you wish. Though from a collection, this appears to be in brand new condition. Gibbons lists this at 19.50 plus shipping from England, but last I looked they stated that it is not in stock. I found a U.S. source with a retail of $44 and a net of $35; also one more recent but same type offered at auction starting at $49! A very useful philatelic tool.

Scott Page Reinforcement Strips -- Lot of 6 Packages: These are clear plastic self-adhesive strips which are used to reinforce or repair Scott album pages. This lot consists of 6 packages, but two different types: 5 sealed packages (new old stock) each containing 24 strips ONLY FOR 2-rectangular-post pages; each strip runs the entire height of the page. Plus 1 opened package (47 strips remain) of more recent strips that are for rectangular-post pages or round-hole pages; this entire package will handle 24 pages. If you have Scott albums with rectangular hole pages, these are a must-have item in your kit. New price for all would be about $25-30.

Archival Paper -- 8.5 x 11 -- 80# Text Weight (32# Bond Weight) -- Package of 100 Sheets: From Archival Methods, new in sealed package, their number 98-002. Though it is not obvious on their website, this line of paper is 80 pound (120 gsm) "Text" weight, which is equivalent to 32 pound "Bond" weight. (For comparison standard copy paper is 20 pound "Bond".) [The differences in weight/naming systems is due to different sizes of the standard large-size printer sheets; you always have to convert and compare to something with which you are familiar.] Current new retail is $15.45 per package of 100 sheets. This is brand-new in sealed package. Full information available at archivalmethods.com -- this is a good company for archival products.

H.E. Harris "W141" Blank Pages: Harris product #W141 Blank Pages for "United States, UN, Canada". The pages have a plain 3-line border and are otherwise completely blank. I assume the reference to certain countries has to do with the border style. Page size 9-1/8 x 12 inches. 2-round-hole punched, 172 mm (-3/4 inches) on center. Same size, punching, and border style as Harris Liberty album. New pages, but package has been opened; package labeled for 128 pages, but I would guess now contains around 100+ pages. Great for expansion in your Harris album for U.S., UN, or Canada.

G and K GLASSINE INTERLEAVING to fit Scott International 2-Round-Hole Binders -- Package of 100 - NEW: G and K product GK-SCPR03 (ZGSGLAIC) glassine interleaving to fit the Scott International binders (2 round holes). Modern, new stock, in brand new condition, shrink-wrapped original sealed packages. Each package contains 100 sheets of glassine interleaving. This is a vitally important item for the 2-sided Scott international albums; this prevents stamps from rubbing on or tangling with each other -- that is a very common cause of damage and financial loss. This is the same high-quality glassine material that we use and trust for our own stock books. This and similar product are available from various sources for $9-13 per package.

Plate Block / Souvenir Sheet / Block Mini Albums (Files): Group of two types of mini albums to hold or organize items such as plate blocks, other types of blocks, small souvenir sheets, etc. 1) "White Ace mint stamp files": 8 "files" with light-blue cover and glassine "pages"; each holds 20 items, or 40 if back to back, up to size of 95 x 160 mm. There is a label affixed to the front of each, but otherwise fresh. 2) Unbranded "Mint Block Files": Total of 7 "files" with three different colors of leatherette covers; each holds 16 items back to back -- there is a built-in glassine safety divider -- up to size of 90 x 130 mm. Very handy. One of the best uses I have seen for these is for use at stamp club meetings or stamp shows to safely transport mid-size items. All offered as a single lot for only $1.25 each!

"Ideal" Stamp Hinges - Sealed packages of 1000 each - New: From an estate I purchased a group of approximately 50 packages of "IDEAL" pre-folded stamp hinges, NEW IN SEALED PACKAGES. While the country of manufacture is not stated on the package, the text is German, thus they were probably made for domestic consumption in Germany. I found that at one time Prinz (which now sells hinges under their own Prinz label name, perhaps these same hinges) was selling these Ideal hinges in the UK. I have examined them and they are in perfectly new condition (no sticking, curling, etc.) While I do not have any long-term experience with them, they seem to be perfectly fine and absolutely suitable for at least used stamps. (You will always have to do your own testing and make your own decisions for using hinges on mint/gummed stamps.) With a pack of fabled Dennison hinges selling for as much as $25 these days, these are a suitable alternative! See quantity discounts over in price column (on the website). Normal comparable new retail appears to be about US$8 for 2 packs, plus shipping. If you order this from me at the same time as some other supplies or heavy items, a couple/few packs of these are not likely to increase the shipping cost of the package, so take a look at the other supply items that I offer.

G and K Stamp Hinges - New Packs - LOT of 11,000 Hinges (11 packs): From an very recent estate: A group of 11 packs (10 sealed, one opened but looks full) of pre-folded stamp hinges. This are G and K brand, but I think that is private labeling from one of the European hinge makers. These are translucent-white, NOT the blue/green versions. They are in new condition, NOT all curled up, etc. While they are not Dennison (at $25/pack!) these are very good hinges. Offered only as the entire lot of 11 packs.

Crystal-Clear Stamp Pockets/Pouches (for APS and other Sales Books) - LOT of 3 Sizes: From an estate: A group of 3 opened packs (originally 500 per pack) of the crystal-clear stamp pockets/pouches that are best for using in APS and other sales circuit books. They need to crystal-clear so that the APS microfilming of the book contents is accurate. This type has an adhesive strip to attach to the book, but the adhesive is not strong enough -- regardless, I prefer when people use a dab of tape to hold the pouch in place and that then permits the pouch to be positioned so the opens to the front. I do not know how many pockets (out of 500) are still present for each size, but the total weight is 21 ounces, so it must be a lot! The three sizes are: 1-3/16 x 1-5/8, 2-1/16 x 2-5/16, and 4-3/16 x 2-1/4 inches. They are in new condition (but see note above about the adhesive). Offered only as the entire lot of 3 opened packs. With these you will be set for mounting up a lot of sales circuit books!

CLEAR Stamp Mounts - SCOTT - Lot with Huge Range of Sizes: For the industrious clear mount user and/or the collector who has many hingeless albums (that use split back mounts) and needs to repair or replace a variety of mounts. At least 54 (FIFTY FOUR) opened packages of Scott brand CLEAR split-back (i.e. Showgard style) MOUNT STRIPS (usually the standard 215 or 264 mm), from size 22 up to 209! These are fresh, modern, opened packages -- this is NOT junk and the mounts still remaining in the packages have NOT been used. The 54 packages include a couple duplicates, so maybe there are 50 different sizes. About 5 of the packages are small pre-cut sizes; the rest are full strips. Each package has had at least part of one strip used; each package will range from virtually full to mostly consumed -- but there is something in every package. I can only guess, but I would guess that on average about 50% of every package remains. If that is correct, then there should be at least $200 new retail value here -- perhaps closer to $300. Despite the obvious price savings, the real value of this group is the tremendous (substantially complete) range of sizes which will be of terrific value to the collector who uses a wide range of clear mounts. Even though these packs are not full, you will not have to buy a whole bunch of new packs yourself; that is a huge savings. (Scott mounts are made by Prinz and they look and feel just like all the major brands of split-back mounts, including Showgard. Despite the different name brands available, I have heard it said that there are really only two factories that make them all.) In my experience it is much harder to find such groups (at low prices) of the clear version.

Lighthouse Stamp Mount Guillotine Cutter: Lighthouse guillotine-style stamp mount cutter with measured bed and "side arm" for additional support and measurement. The side arm on this unit seems to have a place for a slide in it (for repeat cutting of same size), but there is no slide present. Slightly larger than some similar devices, with 7 inch blade -- very handy for cutting larger mounts. Tip #1: The side arm attaches at the end toward the operator; slide it on from the backside and then slide it up (toward the blade hinge) to lock into place -- it is not immediately obvious. Tip #2, for all cutters of this style: While cutting, apply VERY GENTLE sideways pressure on the blade, pushing toward the left, to maintain full metal to metal contact and best results. Very gently used and with many years of good service ahead of it. Current new retail (with the missing slide) is $23.95. -- frankly the slide is probably missing because most people do not use the slide.

Glassine Envelopes Size #2 (3-5/8 wide x 2-5/16 high), PER 100: One of the most popular sizes for individual stamps, small blocks, etc. These are the "good kind" with the rounded flap at the top, side-seams, and NO seam/flap at the bottom. These ARE OLDER, made by Worcester (no longer in operation), previously the primary maker of glassine envelopes. These are not yellowed or discolored, but they are also no longer the original white-clear that they were; they are simply slightly more cloudy-clear. I acquired several new-old-stock boxes of 1000 in a collection purchase; I can use them but since I already had a multi-year supply on hand, I am happy to share these and to offer in smaller quantities -- not everybody needs 1000! The normal new retail prices are around $5/100 and $37/1000. These are priced per 100, however, purchases of at least 1000 will receive a 30% discount at time of invoicing (the discount will NOT show up in the shopping cart).

Glassine Envelopes Size #8 (5-5/8 x 4-1/2 Inches), PER 100: A very useful size for souvenir sheets, smaller covers, post cards, postal stationery, large booklets, making up packets, sorting out mixed lots (large enough to handle most items you will encounter), etc. THIS IS THE "GOOD KIND", with the rounded flap at the top, side-seams, and NO seam/flap at the bottom. The standard product description is usually: "Made from transparent virgin 30# glassine; with ungummed flaps; strong seams, using anti-tarnish adhesive. Size: 6 5/8 x 4 1/2" round flap". This is from an estate and the per-100 dividers were mixed up, so I measured using a known count and separated about 700 envelopes into 6 groups of 100+ (so there should be a few more than 100 in each group). These are modern, fresh, NEW condition. The normal retail prices for this size run right around $10 per 100, but you can find them from some suppliers for around $8 per 100.

Mint Sheet File: Harold Cohn (a good brand) Mint Sheet File with typical quantity of glassine holders; holds a total of 28 sheets (or documents, etc.) with glassine interleaving so they are not touching each other. The holders are 9-1/2 inches wide by 11-3/8 high, but actual maximum item size should be slightly smaller. Appears to never has been used, but has been in an estate so the glassine is not as new as one made today. Great for all sorts of uses.

Stamp Storage Boxes: #1 Glassine Size, RED: The so-called "red boxes" that dealers use for stamp display cards or glassine envelopes. This is the smallest size, made for #1 glassines. 3 inches wide, 2 1/16 inches high, 14 inches long/deep (inside measurements). Will hold roughly 1200 display cards and probably even more glassine envelopes per box. They are much, much more sturdy than the boxes that glassines come in. Priced per box; note that shipping may be subject to "dimensional" weight shipping cost due to very light weight for the volume. This size now seems to be very unusual -- I could not find any source for new supply. CORRECTION: Has label and/or removed label and/or scuffs on the exterior. Price reduced from $3.95 to $2.45 -- this is still a scarce item.

Stamp Storage Boxes: #2 Glassine Size, BLACK: Just like the so-called "red boxes" -- but this is BLACK -- that dealers use for stamp display cards or glassine envelopes. This is the 2nd size, made for #2 glassines. 3-11/16 inches wide, 2-3/8 inches high, 14 inches long/deep (inside measurements). Will hold roughly 1200 display cards and probably even more glassine envelopes per box. They are much, much more sturdy than the boxes that glassines come in. This is very gently used; may show slight signs of use, but not more than you will likely inflict upon it in a couple of months of use. Priced per box; note that shipping may be subject to "dimensional" weight shipping cost due to very light weight for the volume. This size now seems to be very unusual -- I could not find any source for new supply.
