CZ PLATE BLOCKS – updated 12/13/07

 

(Note: Wet Plate plates may have disturbed gum or gum skips, some perf.seps. possible. As usual, 120-35, C6-20, etc. also have normal gum bends.) We have many wet/dry plates. “Right” or “top” indicate the plate position of the plate block (right side, or top, of the sheet), as do LR (lower right), LL (lower left), etc.
