COLLECTING CUT-SQUARES

Previously it was common to collect the imprinted stamps from postal stationery in the same way like stamps are collected. The imprinted stamps were cut out and put in albums. 

VALUE OF CUT-SQUARES

In Denmark there is very few (if any?) collectors of cut squares. Therefore the value of cut-squares is very limited.
