I keep seeing these plate blocks for sale with a portion of the 5 adjoining stamps attached... That would be $25 value to produce a $20 plate block. What is the story behind these?

Isn't even worse than that? I think it's $45, if the remaining partial stamps could not be used. (But perhaps they could.)

I'll be interested to hear what the story is behind this, too.

Correct. I was saying it was $25 in stamps rendered scrap to retain a $20 plate block.

As a side note but related, there is no numeral "5". How noteworthy or exceptional is this?

I had read it as spending $25 for $20 worth of value.
