I generally use S G "Collect British Stamps" to number my collection.

I now have a few used ones from miniature sheets that I want to put into albums.

Do individual stamps have an S G number.

For instance 2002 "Astronomy" miniature sheet has four different stamps in it.

The sheet is numbered MS2315. What are the individual stamps numbered?

Just bumping this one back to the top... surely there is someone who can help? Unfortunately, it won't be me since I use the Scott catalog.

Yes they should but you may have to look in different SG cats to find them! If I remember rightly some miniature sheets accompany the post office sheet for sale, i.e the MS sheet may contain the 4 stamps but the PO sold them in sheets of 50 say, so you would not have purchased them from the PO as in a miniature sheet format if you see what I mean and vice versa. So the MS has its own number along with the 4 individual stamps, again I'm vague on this but if the sheet is a commemorative only SG don't list the numbers of the stamps.

I think I have that right if not, all answers to Billy on a PC with a valid stamp attached
