I believe there was selvedge around the edges, but when the full sheets were cut into the two panes, there is a straight edge created between all the stamps on the edges.

Siegel lot #1113 at this link shows a #63 block of 35, with what is described as a natural straight edge:

Natural straight edges will exist on the left or right side of Scott 63. Any straight edge at top or bottom is unnatural. The stamps were printed in sheets of 200 and cut into panes of 100 causing the stamps from the left pane to have a straight edge at right on the 10th column and the stamps from the right pane to have a straight at left along the first column.
