I have three plate blocks of the same issue. Two have the same number and the third has a different number.
Could someone please give me a briefing on the numbering method for sheets of stamps in 1962?

The number is the plate number - some stamps are printed by more then just one plate. I you want to know about plate numbers and what numbers go with what stamp you should get the Durland plate number catalog.

@studebaker: Thanks for the URL for plate numbers. Very interesting!

However, I put in the plate number"27276" and get no result.
I have a plate block with this number.
Any idea what's up?

It is one of the Dag Hammarskjold plates, but Stamp Smarter wants to 2-plate combination entered to locate it.

Stagedew, this is the famous Hammaskjold invert. It has two plate numbers, also a yellow one.

For the plate number lookup you would have to enter the plate number
27276-27275

I restrict the plate number lookup to an exact match. If the search used a 'contains' it would return too many results. For example, if a user entered a '1' it would return every plate number with a '1' in it.

But with an exact match it only returns plate number that have only a '1'.
