re: BOOKLET PANES

Stamp Lift will leave a mark, but will work unless they really overdid it when gluing the panes in.

I prefer a lot of gentle and patient tugging and pulling. Avoid gripping by non-tab part of the pane, lest you accidentally tear the booklet pane away from the tab. I usually use a small glassine to wrap around the booklet pane so I don't make fingerprints will tugging.

If it's a really really tough one (you'll know after a few tugs) and the booklet has more than one pane, I'll just tear out all the booklet panes intact. Then I'll remove the underlying panes, leaving the underlying tab glued to the top tab. Most people won't notice as long as the tabs are well-aligned, and you don't have to worry about the wrinkly appearance or thins in the top tab.

You don't have that option on some booklets, like the 29¢ fishing flies or 29¢ hummingbirds, where the underlying booklet pane number is not necessarily the same as the one above.

re: BOOKLET PANES

I was going to say something snarky like "remove the staples", but I have also faced the challenge of removing an intact pane, with tab, and my results were less than stellar so I am curious what others have to say...

re: BOOKLET PANES

Of course, on some booklets (like the A stamp, if I remember correctly), all you have to do is pull the pane directly out of the booklet binding. The panes are only glued at the edges.
