This may help to distinguish them. I don't think there's necessarily a "normal" size, it depends upon how they were cut at the printer, as the example below will suggest that the top imperforate stamps show a larger margin as compared to the bottom, which would also mean that the next booklet of stamps would alternate (top with smaller margin; bottom with larger margin):



The one with the top imperforate is #1403; the one with the bottom imperforate is #1403A. The stamps were issued in 2001 as a se-tenant booklet with a pink rose stamp (#1404, #1404A) in alternating top and bottom positions.

Rod, I kind of like those. They at least look more like a stamp to this old-fashioned guy.

I very much doubt it, Peter.
They are like cardboard to handle.
I had some trouble working out what was going on.
Initially I thought the wavy lines were stamps printed on creased paper.
Scott got me out of trouble.

I was thinking the self adhesive must play havoc with the perforator.

The backing sheet is very similar to the paper on the backs of charity labels,
very thick indeed.

.....but I get your drift, nice to have a self adh with genuine perfs.......

Rod, I recognise that se-tenant block , I'm glad you did appreciate it.

They are like cardboard to handle.
I had some trouble working out what was going on.

I know! When I sent you that packet the post office clerk allowed me to look through his book with selection of stamps, so I could pick something nice for your cover. That's when I 'discovered' this cardboard paper as you say, and initially I thought I had stumbled on a fabrication freak of some sort! And that even on a se-tenant block, I was quite excited for a while But, I didn't manage to stick it on your letter as there was no gum, that's why I put it inside your package, unused, thought you would like it . Only next day, when I was studying a similar block I purchased for my self did I realize it was peel-off stickers. I've never seen them on the posthorn definitives before, quite cool.

Jon,
yes, thank you for those.

May I be as bold as to suggest?
If I am correct, these are not "se-tenant"

Askphil: Se-tenant (Seten,): (Fr.) (joined together), two or more unseparated stamps having different colors, denominations, or
designs.

If they were differing, they would be an " se-tenant interpanneau quad or block"
Interpanneau: (Fr.) gutter.

As they are, they are an "Interpanneau block of 4"

I will stand corrected.

Thanks for that huge selection of Austrian duplicates, once I have filled gaps
I'll collect the rest, and give them away here free, as your legacy.

Your welcome Rod! Good idea to pass any left-over duplicates on to someone else. How useful this forum would be if we will all circulate stamps!

You're absolutely right about the block not being se-tenant. I was a bit too hasty and distracted last night with my wife looking over my shoulder, dissatisfied with me being at the forum....off course it's not se-tenant I think of them as making a vertical gutter block, but your definition is probably more precise. Thanks for the correction!

I was actually surprised to find those gutter pairs at all! I think the post office clerks are instructed to separate the sheets so the gutter pairs get separated. Guess that's an advantage with a minor post office (actually a post office within a small grocery shop, so the employee don't know much about stamps at all, and probably doesn't follow the instructions from the post department. And I'm not complaining

Rod,

Out of curiosity, what value did the experts at Antiques Roadshow attatch to this very interesting item? I've never seen anything quite like it.

Coastwatcher,
A fairly standard response if memory serves.
No valuation given, unable to assess, the value lies in the personal attachment it has to the owner, and his/hers relatives.
ergo, "invaluable" in that sense.

Norway Lions.
Scott Type A16
1937 v 1940 (Wmk v Unwmk)

Well I gave up, I ran 100 random, stamps through Wmk fluid,
Not 1 evidenced a single Posthorn wmk.
After drying, placed the 100 in water, nothing.

Only difference I could make, is paper, some have translucent, others thicker white paper.
I do not see any reference on the internet, with similar difficulties
"Big Blue" mentions it.
Good luck with your experience.
