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.

Wonder Colour Gauge: A modern version of the classic printed gauge / guide originally distributed by the Meghrig company back in the 1940-1960s; this appears to be from the 1980s-1990s. Complete set of five cards, plus an index card, intended to represent the range of 140 (in this version) typical stamp colors (i.e. it includes colors like "lake"). Almost still in the original package and appears to be brand new! 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 the only example of this version that I have seen.

Stanley Gibbons Stamp Colour Key: Modern color key with 200 different colors that Stanley Gibbons endeavors to use in their catalog color naming / description scheme. Appears to be a 1990s or later (could even be just a couple years old) production. 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 one is in brand new condition. Gibbons lists this at 19.50 plus shipping from England, but states that it is not in stock. I found a U.S. source with a retail of $44 and a net of $35; also one offered at auction starting at $46! A very useful philatelic tool.

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!

Showgard-Style (Split-Back) Stamp Mounts (BLACK) Very Large Group - Strips - Small Sizes: Very large group of opened/partial packages of Showgard (split-back style) black mounts, in excellent condition, with a tremendous range of the typical SMALLER SIZES (20-52 mm) needed for most "normal" stamps of all countries, including definitives and commemoratives. Additionally, not counted in price, there are several opened/partial packages of small sizes of pre-cut mounts. While all the packages of strips have been at least opened, the vast majority appear to still contain at least 50% of their mounts and in many cases 75-90% of their mounts, nearly all still in full-length strips. There are about 32 such strips packages with the following approximate contents (but this does not guarantee any particular quantity of mounts per package!!!). The Showgard size number is the size in mm of the stamps for which the mount is intended, allowing for appropriate spacing: #20, 22 x6, 24 x3, 25 x3, 27, 28 x2, 30, 31 x2, 33, 36, 39, 40, 41 x3, 44, 48 x2, 50, and 52 x2. The packages variously originally contained 10-22 strips (generally around 215 mm length per strip). No matter how you want to count them, this will mount up a LOT of stamps. While I have not examined the contents of every partial package, spot-checking did not find any problems. The current new retail if these were full, sealed packages would probably be around $250. These are just as good at a small fraction of the cost. This lot gives you tremendous flexibility in the sizes of stamps for which you can use the mounts.

Showgard-Style (Split-Back) Stamp Mounts (BLACK) Large Group - Strips - Small Sizes: Large group of opened/partial packages of Showgard (split-back style) black mounts (and a couple Scott brand), in excellent condition, with a tremendous range of the typical SMALLER SIZES (22-52 mm) needed for most "normal" stamps of all countries, including definitives and commemoratives. While all the packages of strips have been at least opened, the vast majority appear to still contain at least 50% of their mounts and in many cases 75-90% of their mounts, nearly all still in full-length strips. There are about 22 such strips packages with the following approximate contents (but this does not guarantee any particular quantity of mounts per package!!!). The Showgard size number is the size in mm of the stamps for which the mount is intended, allowing for appropriate spacing: #22 x5, 24 x2, 25 x3, 28 x2, 30, 31, 33, 36, 40, 41, 44, 48 x2, and 52. The packages variously originally contained 10-22 strips (generally around 215 mm length per strip). No matter how you want to count them, this will mount up a LOT of stamps. While I have not examined the contents of every partial package, spot-checking did not find any problems. The current new retail if these were full, sealed packages would probably be around $175. These are just as good at a small fraction of the cost. This lot gives you tremendous flexibility in the sizes of stamps for which you can use the mounts.

Showgard-Style (Split-Back) Stamp Mounts (BLACK) Very Large Group - Strips - Large Sizes: Very large group of opened/partial packages of Showgard (split-back style) black mounts, in excellent condition, with a tremendous range of the typical LARGER SIZES (55-127 mm) needed for most large stamps, blocks, souvenir sheets, etc., of all countries. Furthermore, it is important to know that these larger sizes can be cut lengthwise to make "Hawid-style" (open on 3 sides) mounts that many people prefer because there is less risk of damage when putting stamps in or taking them out of the mounts. One larger mount gives you great flexibility of what size stamp can be put in it in this manner. This is what we use. Thus, if so cut lengthwise, just divide the size number by two determine the approximate maximum height in mm of stamps that will fit in them (any smaller stamps will also fit with further cutting down). While all the packages of strips have been at least opened, the vast majority appear to still contain at least 50% of their mounts and in many cases 75-90% of their mounts, nearly all still in full-length strips. There are about 29 such strips packages with the following approximate contents (but this does not guarantee any particular quantity of mounts per package!!!). The Showgard size number is the size in mm of the stamps for which the mount is intended (if left as a split-back mount), allowing for appropriate spacing: #55 x2, 57 x3, 59, 63 x2, 66 x2, 68 x2, 70 x2, 74, 79, 80, 81, 82, 84, 94, 100, 105, 107, 111, 120, 127, and a couple packages of various sizes. The packages mostly originally contained 10 strips, generally around 240-265 mm length per strip, though a very few packages are special shorter strips for blocks or souvenir sheets). No matter how you want to count them, this will mount up a LOT number of stamps and double that quantity if you use open on 3 sides (Hawid style). While I have not examined the contents of every partial package, spot-checking did not find any problems. The current new retail if these were full, sealed packages would probably be around $275. These are just as good at a small fraction of the cost. This lot gives you tremendous flexibility in the sizes of stamps, blocks, and souvenir sheets for which you can use the mounts and almost unlimited flexibility if you use them open on 3 sides.

Showgard Guillotine Orthomatic Mount Cutter #604: Like-new, in-box Showgard Model 604 orthomatic mount cutter with 6-inch blade, with instructions. Includes side extension (it is hiding under the cutter). If you cut your own mounts, you really need something like this! Does not appear to ever have been used. (We also sell a new, slightly larger, but similar style of mount cutter for $39 if you prefer.)

Dealer Sales Pages LOT -- Full-Page (8.5 x 11 inch) -- NEW: A 0.6-inch stack of 8.5 x 11 inch 3-ring-punched white dealer sales pages with a single pocket for containing items up to about 6.5 x 6.75 inches in size. All G and K style 05 -- a very common style/type used for souvenir sheets in dealer sales books. These are NEW and modern/recent, left over from a recently retired dealer. If I had to guess, I would say that there are at least 100 pages. Subway (owner of the G and K brand) sells these regularly for about $0.25 per page, but at the moment has them on sale at about $0.15 per page (total around $15+).
