Please take a look and let me know if these are worth keeping.
I have mountains of stuff to go though but I'm hesitant to throw anything away at the moment lol

In the "sell" category so far. Decent stamps that someone will want if you don't. Keep scanning!

Modern unused decimal GB stamps can be used to post letters so are worth face value if you post them. If you trade them you will get less, approx 50% face value. If you check carefully with dealers selling prices a few may be worth more than the face value especially if they have errors

The cylinder blocks are nice. This is a highly specialised collecting area. Your 8d vermilion block is quite common (1998: £2.25). It was the only printing cylinder used for the stamp. Yours is from the left pane of the double-pane printer's sheet. The 8d duck egg blue also is from the left pane, that is priced slightly higher (1998: £7.50) than the block from the right pane that has a full stop behind the number. The 1/9 cylinder block also is the only combination. The price depends on whether the 1B is a dull orange (1998: £ 11) or bright orange (£ 18). I think it is the former. That should have the organic gum arabic. The bright orange exists on gum arabic and polyvinyl-alcohol gum paper. The paper also is whiter.

Can you expand, that does not mean much to me.
Not heard of stock number prior.

I am not clear what they are. I understood they were some kind of inspection marks. But whether they were applied when receiving supplies or during stock-taking, I am not sure.
