Hi Tony, hope this helps...

Cylinder blocks have markings in the margins that correspond with the printers identifying information, phosphor numbers, colour, etc. This method of collecting is favored by specialists as all the necessary proof and information of origin is evident as details in the markings.

These are usually collected in blocks of six (2 x 3). Harrisons small format stamps have the cyl number in the margin opposite row 18.

The primary sheet is guillotined into two, each half has the same cyl number. The right hand pane should have a full stop placed in the box next to the cyl number, this is known to collectors as the “dot pane, or sheet”. The left hand pane of the sheet being the “no dot sheet”.

A quick add that the 4p and 20p produced by Waddington are collected in multiples of 8 (minimum). 10 is better. They are found in the TOP right margin of the sheet.
