These Flanged Plates are the only examples I have seen of this type of parts wrapping. I am now aware that this was a common wrapping for a time, these are most certainly summer of 1914. What years did this wrapping exist?

NP, Thanks for that, can you elaborate on the years that your examples span? The windmill sails mentioned by Mman seem to be from 1919 or so, are any of your examples from this late or later?

I also have examples of this wrapping in UK sets for both local and US markets.

Similar wrapping is shown in the parts section of this site relating to part 61 windmill sails.

Just a thought; might it possibly be cooking parchment or greaseproof paper or the like, which has gone 'transparent' through age? This would account for its paper-like feel and brittle consistency.
