II, Coil (491). Mint N.H. joint line pair, radiant color, detailed impression on crisp paper, margins wide at top and bottom, ample at sides

VERY FINE AND EXTREMELY RARE MINT NEVER-HINGED JOINT LINE PAIR OF THE 2-CENT ROTARY TYPE II COIL, SCOTT 491.

Unlike many other issues, this horizontal coil is much scarcer than its the vertical coil counterpart (Scott 487). The Type II horizontal coil, Scott 491, was in production for only a short period of time before being replaced by the Type III, Scott 492. Only about a month separates the EDU's for the two coils (Dec. 19, 1916 for No. 491 and Jan. 13, 1917 for No. 492).

This coil in joint line pair format is exceedingly rare in Mint N.H. condition. A review of our computerized records using Power Search revealed only three other Mint N.H. joint line pairs.

Ex Whitman and Curtis. With 2004 P.F. and 2015 P.S.E. certificates (F 70; SMQ $12,000.00). Only two Mint N.H. joint line pairs are listed in the P.S.E. Population Report -- both graded 70

ADDENDA: This has a 2003 P.F. certificate as previously hinged. It is being offered as previously hinged.
