Just unpacked another discount lot and discovered 19 of these Blue Jay 20c booklets. All are sealed, and the few I peeked into are S2222.






Are these all BK237?..

Did you look at Scott 3048a which describes a serpentine cut with S2222?

Would cover rouletting distinguish BC128 from BK237 - 8 1/2 gauge vs 12 1/2 gauge?

Scott describes the characteristics of the different panes. Glue strip at top of pane, roulette gauge etc. Do you have a Scott?

Ax - if you have S2222 with gauge 12 1/2 rouletting, you have won the lottery.

eyeonwall: wait, doesn't 12 1/2 gauge and S2222 mean 3048a (convertible booklet?) that's what my 2021 Scott Specialized says. Or am I reading it wrong

Ax - sorry, I read it wrong - S2222 & 8 1/2 = vending = good

eyeonwall, in that case, holy cow. they are all S2222 & 8 1/2. does it matter if they are 1995 or 1996?

I don't understand - there should not be any 1995 for either vending or convertible self-adhesive (the only 1995 are the lick & stick booklets)

It is the date on each stamp I was thinking of. The date at the top is just when the design was copyrighted, not when the stamps were issued.

I looked in the 2022 Scott general catalogue and it lists the "convertable" booklets (3048a) of 10 at only $4.00 catalogue. The notes below mention those numbers. The vending machine booklets (3048b) are listed with 4 stamps at $40 and (3048c) with 6 stamps at the higher catalogue value of $100.

It mentions nothing about rouletting, but obviously that is in the specialised catalogue.

Edit:added word convertable

Note found at another online web page stating : Convertible booklets (#3048a) with plate number S2222 always have gauge 12½ rouletting on booklet covers.
