Most of our Smilers Sheets use the Ridgewood Stamps’ numbering system. We will try to mention any other numbering that we may use if not covered by the above. Sometimes particular stamps, Smilers sheets, booklets, miniature sheets, or cylinder blocks are not recognized anywhere. In this case we would use our own expertise to describe and value that particular item.
