My guess is that the wads are a wood fiber between card stock. It could be ground cork, but it doesn't look like ground cork to me.

You know, it could be felt. That was a common wad material at the time.

OK, I think my Ideal 26 is post 1912, because I just found references to "Remington-UMC" primers.

Just found a Du Pont ad in the back that's dated 1916.
