Thanks for the point about the Coral Reef pane. I looked at it again and great point about the difficulty of getting a strip in Scott catalog number order. But let me add it would be easiest to obtain all 4 designs from the columns rather than the rows as the repetition of one of the designs increases the risk tears or removal of backing when trying to get 4 stamps from a row of 5.
Now I offer another interesting pane which offers NO strips in Scott number order although it provides all 4 designs. HOWEVER you can get the stamps in Scott catalog number in a pane of 4 (2x2) going left to right top row and then same direction bottom row. IN fact you can obtain 2 of them with the top left and bottom right corners being the easiest to obtain from the pane.
So it goes back to my point that the stamps in panes with multiple designs really offer some interesting visual challenges as well as a nice mosaic to appreciate, especially as your point about obtaining the designs in Scot catalog number order further enriches their appreciation
And regarding coils and panes of low denomination stamps thanks much for the additional info. The gist of my point is simply that to obtain all coils and panes of low denomination stamp design series such as American Design and Meyer Fruits can take a bit of legwork and patience due to their intermittent availability on USPS, the large amounts you have to get sometimes for coil stamps if you miss times smaller coils are sold at USPS and the unavailability of some coils and panes at post offices.
