I have acquired a number of stamps on paper from mixtures and find that sometimes the attached paper is as interesting as the stamp. For example
removing the paper may remove some of the cancel which shows the city, year, etc. To display the stamps I put them into the black sheets with the
clear mylar pockets to show off the stamp as is. Sometimes I may trim the paper down around the stamp.
