USPS didn't do any better this year. Received my yearbook today and they cut the perfs off of 6 stamps! The Chinese New Year didn't surprise me, but they also cut the perfs off of Special Olympics, all 3 of the Medal of Honor stamps, and the $2 wave. They also did not provide mounts for the Medal of Honor or World Stamp Show.

Bummer!

re: 2015 Yearbook

Thanks for the warning, Lars. I was wondering whether I should try my luck this year or not. You saved me (and others) from the disappointment.

re: 2015 Yearbook

I bought the 2014 yearbook just to get the circus sheet. After seeing all the cut stamps that were worth nothing more than postage, I am not surprised that the trend continues in 2015.

I get year packs from Canada. A large number of the stamps from Canada are self-adhesive. None are sliced and diced so as to be noncollectable like all the stamps in the US year sets.

re: 2015 Yearbook

The strange thing is that most of the ones that are damaged don't make any sense. They could have simply torn a single from the pane for Special Olympics and the $2 wave. I was surprised they tried to send only a block of 3 from the Medal of Honor but sent an entire pane of War of 1812! I suspected they would butcher the Chinese New Year and purchased a pane of that. It's not a big deal. I just placed an order for what I need and will swap out the bad and use for postage.

I'm committed to buying these yearbooks since this is the only U.S. I will "collect" after 12-31-14 (unless it fits my topical). I want to preserve the basics in case one of my boys becomes a collector. They are 9 and 11 so I still have some time.

Cheers!

Lars
