VERY FINE MINT NEVER-HINGED GUIDE LINE PAIR OF THE 4-CENT 1909 HORIZONTAL COIL, SCOTT 354.
With 2004 P.F. and 2013 P.S.E. certificates (F-VF 75; SMQ $2,000.00). This is an exceedingly difficult coil line pair to find in Mint N.H. condition with decent centering. Only three Mint N.H. line pairs have achieved a higher grade from P.S.E. (one each at 80, 85 and 90). Among all the 1908-09 double-line watermarked coils, only the 2c Scott 353 has as low a population of centered Mint N.H. line pairs in the P.S.E. Population report (excluding the rare 10c, Scott 356)
