EXTREMELY FINE GEM. THIS SUPERB USED GUIDE LINE PAIR OF THE 1908 ONE-CENT VERTICAL COIL, SCOTT 348, IS GRADED XF-SUPERB 95 BY P.S.E. -- THIS IS THE HIGHEST GRADE AWARDED AND IT IS SHARED BY NO OTHERS.
The vertical coils of the early Bureau issues were less popular than the horizontal coils and so relatively few were used. Used guide line pairs of Scott 348 are rare in any condition, let alone in sound condition with choice centering. This superb pair sits atop the P.S.E. Population Report.
With 2008 A.P.S. and 2009 P.S.E. certificates (XF-Superb 95; SMQ $2,750.00). This is the highest grade awarded to a used guide line pair and it is shared by no others
