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 Color 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 the second example of this version that I have seen.

Philatell Stamp Examination Platform / Multi-Tool: I have seen these before, but this is the first one I have ever had. It has several useful features. The base has a rotating center (with a control lever for minute adjustment), with a non-slip surface, where you place the stamp. There is a light above it with a bare, clear incandescent bulb (under a hood to block the glare). This type of clear bulb is necessary for examining stamps at an oblique angle -- an important perspective for the philatelist. From the hood there is suspended a ground-glass diffuser which allows you to adjust the quality of light you are getting. There is a built-in perforation gauge (turn the knob to go from 10 to 16.5). There appears to have been a magnifying glass also mounted on the base, but it is not present (but frankly, I suspect that for me it would always have been at the wrong angle; I prefer controlling that myself). Made in Switzerland, but wired for U.S. voltage and plug. While this may be hard to describe, it is an ingenious tool. It is both still a useful tool and a philatelic collectible! I am sure the cost was quite high back in the day!

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!

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.

Lighthouse Stamp Mount Guillotine Cutter: Lighthouse guillotine-style stamp mount cutter with measured bed and "side arm" for additional support and measurement. Slightly larger than some similar devices, with 7 inch blade -- very handy for cutting larger mounts. Tip for all cutters of this general 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. It makes a good clean cut (I just tested it). Current new retail is $23.95.

Cover and Card Holders / Protectors: Group of Gently Used Holders.: Gently used group of TWO TYPES. GROUP #1: About 100 (?) gently used post card sized holders / protectors. Appears to be the usual excellent archival quality "Mylar" type. Side opening. These are light to medium weight. Exterior size: 6 x 3 1/8 inches. Interior size (will fit items up to): 5 3/4 x 3 5/16 inches. This is a excellent quality cover holder / protector for cards, small postal stationery, very small covers, and other items including booklets, Scout patches, etc. (If you are going to use a side-opening holder for thinner things like souvenir sheets, then I recommend trimming off the top edge for easier in-and-out access; that is what I do.) Gently used. I did not count, but I estimate 100. New retail for this size ranges from $18-24/100 for this level of quality. If you collect post cards you will like these. Once you put something in one you will not notice that it was previously used. GROUP #2: Gently used group of about 40 (?) wrap-around style crystal-clear holders for long covers, measuring 9 3/8 x 4 1/8 inches -- and holds items up to about 1/8 inch smaller dimensions. Lightweight. The wrap-around style can be easier than trying to slide a long cover into a holder. I do not have current price information, but these are very useful. THE PRICE IS FOR THE LOT OF TWO TYPES/SIZES.

Supersafe Mint Sheet Album: Supersafe is a good brand (sold by Vidiforms which is the U.S. supplier of Showgard stamp mounts). This is a large album that holds 100 sheets (or documents, or anything else up to about 9.5 x 11 inches). The pages are black, double sided, with crystal-clear fronts. The binder is grayish-black, 12 inches deep and 12.25 inches high, with gold decoration. This appears to be absolutely brand new (it is from a recent estate that had a lot of recently purchased unused supplies). Normal new price is $67.95. Great for sheets, but also for any other large items.

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.
