    I picked this up earlier because I like old engraved tickets. Got it for a great price too. I believe it is probably from the centennial 1876 exposition. Continental Banknote co. done the engraving for the reverse anyway, not sure about the obverse though? I see on the bottom now, it says Continental banknote Company.

    In Philadelphia on the 100Th anniversary of the USA. 1776-1876 I posted links underneath the images. I grabbed this up as it will be a good fit into my Chicago 1892-1893 Columbian Exposition tickets and ephemera collection. I'm happy with it. I'm also bidding on a William Harrison inaugural ball ticket.

    In a Vario page that has a 4-way divide along with my Columbian tickets West.

    I do indeed! I'll scan a Vario 4 way divide sheet in it's entirety so you can see what they look like West.

    I usually crop out the holes and bottom so it looks neat and uniform.

    And west you can get these in 5,6,7 & 8 horizontal divide (regular stockbook pages) and the "1 way" division for your maxi cards and souvenir sheets and the like and even in 2 different background colours eg. Black (like shown above) or clear. Also they come in some different designs (albeit all similar but mostly has to do with the type of binder or system you use). I'll scan a 1,2,4 way divides and you have seen the 5,6,7 & 8 way via my scans all over this board. OK, I'll get too it now! I should mention that this is NOT a plug and have absolutely NO affiliation with Vario or Lighthouse (distributor) in any way shape or form other than a customer. Just so we are clear on that...haha!!

    The presentation is excellent Jay. Are the black backed cards expensive? I am guessing they then go in an A4 ring binder, is that the idea?

    Love this presentation, I think I will do the same as this as currently my "album" is just a folder with card in poly pockets separated into years and stamps on rails inside, very badly presented and difficult to see anything/everything!

    No not expensive at all for what the are. They are not junk and are made of mylar which is I believe archival.

    Equinox I exclusively use Vario sheets as I find the standard album straps you in to a certain collecting method and I also think the black sets off the stamps a bit better.

    There is also another company on ebay that does something similar again archival quality, I will have to dig out the name for you
