Types of Stamps - Booklet Stamps

Booklet Stamps are issued in a small convenient book containing stamps of one or more denomination. They are often sold through vending machines. Booklet stamps are usually collected with the booklet unopened, (or Unexploded) as illustrated to the left by the 1990 Historic Lighthouses - Scott #BC234 or in a booklet pane format as shown below.

Booklet Panes are  panes of stamps especially cut and printed to be sold in booklets. Booklets usually contain two or three of these panes. They can be straight edged on one, two or three sides. In the illustration to the left the top four stamps contain only one straight edge and the bottom pair contains two straight edges.
