I was trying to understand the formats that generated the Scott and SG since I was trying to confirm I understood Steiner page spaces.

Can someone confirm this summary? Did I miss something? Images all off eBay lots. I know I misspelled Walsall.

The Scott pages from a collection I purchased had spaces for 2054,2055, 2057, 2058 but Steiner includes the souvenir sheet too.

One question was if 2056d the same as 2055 so if I had one or other how do I determine. The 2055 is litho and 2056d is gravure but not sure if other differences.

Hello Angore,

It looks from your scans as though the litho stamp has a narrower blue region at the bottom than the gravure stamp.

I was trying to compare the relative distances: margin to flag at left, with margin to ball.

However this might the effect of sellers using marketing images rather than actual stamps. I don;t have any originals to hand.

The challenge is I have yet to master SG numbers. I get the MSxxxx but not the Lxxxx.

Good question Al!

Here SG's numbering scheme is actually "SG LSxxxx" rather than "SG Lxxxx".

So the two sheets here are SG LS8 (not L58) and SG LS39.

SG calls these "Post Office Label Sheets" and they are generally known as "Smilers" as the first sheet (SG LS1) was made up of the 1981 "Smiles" greetings stamps designs.

The concept was to have a sheet with a number of stamps each with a customisable se-tenant label and these were produced at stamp exhibitions etc.

SG doesn't list the customised/personalised/corporate versions of these sheets, just the default "generic" format in each case and these are often called "Generic Smilers".

These Post Office Label Sheets have their own section towards the end of the SG Great Britain Concise catalogue.

The stamp in SG LS39 has a changed design from SG 2291 etc. but (at least in my old 2010 catalogue) it hasn't been given a full listing on the grounds that these sheets were sold at a premium over face value.

Thanks for the correction. I have not dealt with booklets and sheets much so had not ventured to back of the Concise except to look at the Machins.
