EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB USED GUIDE LINE PAIR OF THE 5-CENT HORIZONTAL COIL, SCOTT 447. EASILY ONE OF THE FINEST IN EXISTENCE, AND THE ONLY LINE PAIR GRADED XF-SUPERB 95 BY P.S.E.

Coil multiples can be extremely difficult to obtain in such superb used condition. They are rarely found well-centered both side-to-side and also top-to-bottom. Guide line pairs add an additional degree of rarity, as they occur only once every 20 stamps. Add in the factor that few guide line pairs were used, and its true rarity in this condition can begin to be appreciated.

Ex "Tahoe". With 1999 and 2019 P.F. certificates. With 2008 P.S.E. certificate (XF-Superb 95; SMQ $3,750.00). This is the only used guide line pair to achieve this grade in the P.S.E. Population Report, which is the highest awarded. The next highest graded used line pair drops all the way down to 80

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. THIS STUNNING MINT NEVER-HINGED GUIDE LINE PAIR OF SCOTT 447 HAS RECEIVED THE PERFECT GRADE OF GEM 100 FROM P.S.E. -- THIS IS THE HIGHEST GRADE AWARDED.

The 5c Perf 10 flat plate coil was among the last coils to be issued before the rotary press coils began to take their place. Strangely, while the issue date for Scott 447 is July 30, 1914, the earliest documented use listed in Scott is May 9, 1916 -- after the EDU for the rotary press 5c coil, Scott 458, which is known used a month earlier.

With 2009 P.S.E. certificate (Gem 100; SMQ $8,000.00). This is the highest grade awarded to a Scott 447 guide line pair and it has been equaled by only one other
