Sale Number 1206, Lot Number 475, 1913-15 Washington-Franklin Issues (Scott 424-461)2c Red, Ty. I, Coil (449), 2c Red, Ty. I, Coil (449)2c Red, Ty. I, Coil (449). Pair, brilliant color, choice centering for this difficult issue, bold strikes of registry oval cancels, showing joint line at top

VERY FINE AND CHOICE USED PAIR OF THE 2-CENT TYPE I VERTICAL COIL, SCOTT 449.

The 2c Type I rotary plate was used very briefly to make vertical coils issued in late 1915. It was briefly used because the Type I plate was not very deeply engraved and the curvature of the rotary press yielded impressions lacking in some of the details. The Bureau noticed this immediately, and quickly replaced it with the Type III plate (according to Scott, the EDU for No. 449 is Oct. 29, 1915, and the EDU for Type III is Dec. 10, 1915).

Ex Hall. With 2003 and 2016 P.F. certificates (VF-XF 85). With 2017 P.S.E. certificate (F-VF 75; SMQ $5,000.00). We feel the P.S.E. grade on this is particularly stingy -- though this is still the second highest grade in the P.S.E. Population Report (highest is 80).

VERY FINE AND CHOICE. AN EXTRAORDINARILY RARE MINT NEVER-HINGED JOINT LINE PAIR OF THE 1915 2-CENT TYPE I VERTICAL COIL, SCOTT 449. AN OUTSTANDING RARITY.

The 2c Type I rotary plate was used very briefly to make vertical coils issued in late 1915.

The Bureau noticed this immediately, and quickly replaced it with the Type III plate (according to Scott, the EDU for No. 449 is Oct. 29, 1915, and the EDU for Type III is Dec. 10, 1915). The joint line pair offered here, in Mint N.H. condition and with such choice centering and color, is a major rarity. Only a handful exist in such condition.

With 2002 P.F. and 2014 P.S.E. certificates (VF 80; SMQ $28,000.00). This is one of only three Mint N.H. joint line pairs of Scott 449 to achieve this grade, with only one higher (at 90)
