Series 17 Album Insert

Who knew that some of the series 17 Indians of Canada albums had an insert in them? Well I got an email from Terry Gomes with a story to tell.

He told me that he recently won an auction with a series 17 album in a mailer. He opened it up and discovered an insert about different Indian tribes in the US and Canada and where they are located. As he discovered it, he realized that he had seen one before... back when he was collecting as a kid. His album had had an insert but over the years he had forgotten about it.

What a great surprise! Thanks for sharing Terry!

Hmmmm, what's it look like? First of all, an album is 7.25" by 4 7/8" and the insert is 6.5" by 2.5" so it is quite a bit smaller than the size of the album. It's also curious that there is already a map with a lot of information about Indian tribes on the back inside cover. So why make an insert? A good question with no answer apparent right now.

You want to see it, right? OK, here you go.

So now you have to go out and find your own. I'd like to hear from anyone else who has one. There can't be too many. What can you find in an album?
