How can you tell if a saddle has thigh blocks?

I have a Crosby XL saddle (the one by Michael Matz) and am wondering if it has thigh blocks? Is there anyone that can tell me how I would know if it has thigh blocks? What do they look like and where would they be on the saddle?

Bumping this up... I'm selling a saddle and I was asked if it has thigh blocks but am not sure where to look for them. Stupid of me, I know.

You need to lift up the flaps of your saddle, look to see where the billets lay.

If you see these leather blocks at where the thigh would be, then your saddle has thigh blocks.

Also, some saddles have them on the outside:
