Stock arrived today, and in what is probably an unrepresentative sample our packs of 50 of each booklet each contained 10 with cylinder numbers.
Cylinder numbers start level with the bottom of the lower stamp and are Magenta, Yellow, Cyan, Black and Gold, all D1. I can't see any phosphor cylinder number on either 1st or 2nd. Package dates are 05/07/11 for 1st class and 30/08/11 for 2nd class.
Publicity images of the booklets. Scans of cylinder booklets will be added soon.
