Was wondering if anyone was familiar with these Educator Packets I found in an estate sale lot last weekend. My two biggest questions are 1) Would a dealer have put these together or would the collector? 2) Other then being pretty neat is there any other compelling reason to keep these together? A few items I'm tempted to parse off the sheets but holding off on that for now. At this point I still have to go thru everything to confirm they are what they say they are. The 2c postage due probably in the wrong spot. I may also have to remove some stamps to check for any watermarks. If anyone has run into any of these before or any advice please let me know. thanks.

Those are great items. Something many of us should have done but didn't.

Please leave them intact. The whole is worth considerably more than the component parts. The stamps were selected to illustrate the types/colors and overall are not particularly well-centered. Use these as a guide to find nicer copies for your collection.

I like how "lesson 222" features Scott #333.
Definitely created by the Illuminati.

Small correction, the Type I stamp is perf 11, thus Scott 501.

The more commonly encountered educational booklets seem to be the "Tasco" booklets:

Thanks, I wasn't planning on selling any of it, but was thinking of placing a few pieces in my albums. I'll leave them together (except for finding a better orange vermillion). Does anyone know if these would have been bought full from a dealer, or would the collector filled in the blank sheets themselves?

I think it's a safe bet these were prepared by Stanley Gibbons Co. quite some time ago. They were known back in the day for innovative approaches to collector education. In this case the stamps were permanently mounted to the sheets in order to serve as a reference. Best not to try to take them off.

Not sure if these are pictured somewhere? Understanding the colors will be impacted by scanning and monitors, at least folks could see them?!?!?!

I have the following: 213, 214, 224, 230, 233, 234, 235, 236, 238.

The entire reason I chased this lot at our local club auction however, was for the unnumbered diamond in the lot, " Stanley Gibbons, Inc. US Envelope Paper Guide."

Small pieces of 40 different papers cut from envelopes as color samples. In case you need to decide if you have "orange light" or "creamy buff" which to my eyes seem to be pretty much the same...

Regardless, perhaps Don would like a digital collection of these for the reference website?

I am certainly willing to scan what I have as a start?

The stamps are holding on with regular hinges.

My first step in checking these was to check the perforations. Already found an issue, the Type IV on chart 238 is perf 10, which it should not be. Makes me question whether any or all of these are correct.

The envelope paper samples are as well. I think I have a few where the hinge is there but the paper is missing...
