Can you tell the difference between stamps that are worth a "pretty penny" from those that are only worth a few pence?

Take a look


Just for fun : Example 1

Below are two, left margin Cylinder blocks of 6 stamps (a cylinder block allows collectors to identify easily a particular stamp type, manufacturing process and known defects, with accuracy)

One of the blocks has a catalogue value of £500.00 and the other a considerably less catalogue value of £2.00 – can you tell the difference?

image 01: Is this the block that is catalogued at £500, or

image 02: ... is this block catalogued at £500?


Answer: The difference is purely the cylinder number in the top margin and the quantity of stamps that would have been made from each one.

image 01: The cylinder number that this block is from reads 9A.7B.
image 02: The cylinder number that this block is from reads 7A.6B.
