Can anyone tell me what's going on with this booklet? It's a partial, with two loose and six attached stamps. And these attached stamps look like sheet stamps.

It looks like someone reused an empty booklet with a refill of sheet stamps, done carefully with the stamps folded face to face so the gum was against a glassine interleaving.

Otherwise there are just to many production errors to explain: stamp direction, 2 panes face to face without interleaving, full perforations, etc. While the stamps may appear "stuck" in the booklet, I suspect you will find they are not stapled into the booklet at the end. Count me as very skeptical.

can you post a close-up of both sides of the staples. If it was re-stapled, you should be able to see it: nobody could lineup the stapler perfectly twice.

It does not take any staple removal to peek under one of the left corners to see if the stamps are fully stapled-in or are (my guess) just folded and jammed in tight enough to have become stuck over time simulating being "bound-in".

Yeah, you guys were right- not stapled in. Just jammed in really tight. Why anyone would do this to a worthless booklet, I haven't the foggiest...

Because it's an easy way to carry stamps without damaging them?

Maybe just for fun? A friend of my father, everytime he went to DC got $100 of crisp new $2 bills, squared them up nicely, and then stuck a piece of cardboard with rubber cement on the end. Then, when he went into a store to buy something, he'd pull out this pad of fresh, new, crisp $2 bills, tear off how many he needed, leaving the clerk dumfounded.
