    When I buy old collections on eBay, etc...I often run across cutouts from postal cards, stamped envelopes and wrappers which some long-ago collector saved with their collection. I tend to think of these as garbage but hang on to them nonetheless thinking that maybe there is a market for them somewhere or there might be some value that I was unaware of. India, in particular, is a country where I seem to have accumulated a lot of these from collections that I have bought. What does everyone else do with them? Throw them away?

    i to have bundles of them, i have an unusual amount of KGVI nearly all 1/2d green and have often wondered why some one would collect so many, i have no idea what to do with them, but i would not throw them out.

    one day i will find out why they were kept like this in the first place, and i hope it was because it gives them more value lol

    I have a collection of them from the US. All others I tend to trade them or give them away. I would never throw them out, knowing that someone else might wont them.

    Gentlemen, when you find someone that actually wants them, please let me know...meanwhile they will continue to gather dust in the nether regions of my stockpages.

    Yes and here are some more examples from Boznia & Herzegovina, Hungary, Argentina, Austria and the Cape of Good Hope. When I didn't know any better I used to spend fruitless hours trying to figure out what they were in the catalog, thinking they were valuable 19th century imperfs not listed anywhere...then I caught on that they were simply cutouts from postal stationary. In the end I think it would be more useful to have the full postal card or wrapper than these cutouts. They are interesting nonetheless...
