Sale Number 1145, Lot Number 475, Washington-Franklin and Later Issues6c Red Orange, Perf 10 at Top (506a), 6c Red Orange, Perf 10 at Top (506a)6c Red Orange, Perf 10 at Top (506a). Sweated original gum, bright color with just a faint trace of oxidation, centered to right but with perfs clear, light creasing at top

FINE APPEARANCE. AN INCREDIBLY RARE ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 6-CENT 1917 ISSUE PERF 10 AT TOP. ONLY ONE OTHER UNUSED EXAMPLE IS RECORDED.

At some point during production of the 1917 Issue, one of the perforating wheels became defective. In the course of repairs part of one perforation wheel was inadvertently changed from Perf 11 to Perf 10. Based on the physical evidence of surviving copies, this was the nineteenth row of pins on the wheel.

Many examples of the Perf 10 on One Side rarities show transitional perfs from 10 to 11 or from 11 to 10. This is because the out-of-gauge perforation pins would frequently cross the span of more than one stamp, depending on where the wheel contacted the sheet.

The Perf 10 on One Side varieties span both the 1917 Washington-Franklin and 1922-23 Issues. It is interesting to note that, apart from the 2c, there is no duplication of denominations between the issues. This would seem to indicate that the improperly repaired wheel was in use for only a short period of time, as there was little overlap in production of the issues. Based on dates of issue of the basic stamps, this probably occurred early in 1923.

Our census of Scott 506a, available at our website at http://siegelauctions.com/dynamic/census/506a/506a.pdf , contains 21 used and two unused examples.
