In general, I wouldn't pay anything for the album. On occasion, I have. Most of my stamps from former French Colonies are on MOC leaves, and there have been times when I've bid more on a country lot, knowing that the leaves alone would cost me £100+.
Chris - hello. MOC - not sure what it stands for - was a Marseilles company that produced leaves and binders for the French area. The pages are now produced by Lighthouse as a niche operation. They're the only printed pages you can get for French colonies, aside from the Steiner/Palo things. My GVI and later Commonwealth, my post-independence French colonies and my other bits and pieces are on quadrille. If I started again, I'd just go for quadrille!
I'm like floortrader. In my somewhat remote past of buying world wide collections; or even specialty collections; my sole interest was in the stamps. Anything getting between me and the stamps; whether plastic sheets, mounts, even glassine interleaving; usually would not elicit a bid from me. I think I have maybe a half dozen binders left from 60-80 binders of stamps that I bought. Everything else was trashed, or broken up to salvage recyclable parts.
