 ... The uniform typographic jackets [of the balloon cloth era] came in var=
ious=20
olor combinations: yellow paper with red or green bands, green paper with g=
reen=20
ands, light blue paper with blue bands come to mind. I've always assumed th=

ach title with a uniform typographic jacket was available in all four color=
=20
ombinations, but I've never tried to collect multiple examples to demonstra=
te=20
his.  ...
 ____________________________________=20
I've always resisted this, thinking that if the color differences indicated=
=20
othing significant (date, for example, since all colors were used all the t=
ime=20
nstead of, say, red bands to 1932 then green bands to 1935 etc) then postin=
g=20
ll colors for the sake of posting was redundant and unnecessary work. =20
But since the collector -- who has contributed a LOT of work on recent ML=
=20
rojects -- asked for it, I thought I'd get people's opinions. If the weight=
 of=20
rguments clearly demands it, I'll do it.
Please post your thoughts on this issue.
