Booklet Panes that were included in a booklet are free of the damage caused by the production of booklets, such as the staple holes or gumming. Unfolded booklet panes were produced by the Postal Service for First Day Cover producers. Production of unfolded panes reduced the production cost for the Post Office and was easier for the FDC Cachet companies to apply to their covers. We have obtained an inventory of the panes for many issues.
'Unexploded' Vending Booklets are booklet panes still stapled or bound into their vending booklet covers. No longer issued by the U.S. Post Office, having been replaced by the ATM panes that are the size of a U.S. Dollar Bill and can be dispensed by ATM Machines, unexploded bending booklets can be an interesting challenge to the stamp collector. Our listing includes early issues and complete from the prexies.
