On Dec 17, 2007, Sid Dickens wrote:

Sid confirms that the tile you purchased is in fact one of his very old experimental tiles. The back of it is so poorly finished because he was experimenting with the colour on the face of it, so he wasn't worried about the actual pouring of the tile. He would have been using this piece to experiment with the colour on its face and says its has to be one of his very first, in the Linen finish. It should have been destroyed, so no idea how it ended up with a Sid Dickens label on its back. Good news for you, though...

The block was purchased from a long time collector in Oct of 2007. At the time, the block was not confirmed. In fact Sid Dickens himself saw a photo of the block, and said it must be a fake. He never used a different script on the hearts series. Few months later, he had the block in hand, and verified it as an early model experimental prototype.

This experimental prototype, is a one of a kind. No other copies were made.

Notice the different scrip used on the block, compared to the PQ and T-series Heart collection. Notice the translucent red ink used on the hearts. Unlike the PQ and T-series Hearts, you can see the script under the hearts.
