I'm not sure where to post these, so I'm doing it here. What exactly are these? Any help is appreciated ...

look like the litho used for the 19th century "position"pins of various issues.

Hi Chris,

If I had to guess I'd say that you have some proofs for position pins. Very interesting.

+1--seems like a very good guess to me. Definitely proofs, IMHO.

Happy collecting, especially the stuff that may be unique, or nearly so.

Hi Chris, those are really neat pieces! They certainly look like proofs. I don't know if there's an ACC designation for these particular pins (I could not find them) but I did find some links of interest.
