What does "Pennsylvania Quarters/Stamps" mean?

I received a snail mail auction notice today for a coin and currency auction
to be held soon.  There are four pages of lots, each page with 3 columns.
The lots are mostly common dates or bullion type, nothing really high grade
except for the modern.

Among the listings are a number of lots that simply say

"Connecticut Quarters/Stamps"

with each of the numerous listings with a different state quarter name.

My first thought was that these were listings for First Day Covers.  Does
anyone have any other ideas?

Just a vague idea - a while ago the USPS issued "state stamps" like this
one:  http://www.unicover.com/images/7.connecticut.jpg

Maybe somebody combined such a stamp and the CT quarter, and then sells
such sets?

First day coin covers are most all still availiable directly from the mint
at a price of $19.95.
For 2 coins and a stamp. They are wanting way too much money for those.

That's what I was thinking.  When these stamps came out, I picked up a
sheet to go with my cheapy SQ folder.  There is a new 50-stamp set out
representing state post cards.  I may pick up a sheet of those as well.
