EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB GUIDE LINE PAIR OF THE 2-CENT 1910 VERTICAL COIL, SCOTT 386.

According to Johl (Vol. 1, p. 111), the Bureau switched to Perf 8-1/2 for their coils after a very short period of time. The Perf 12 coils proved to be too susceptible to falling apart in the machines used to affix (and make) the coils. Scott 386 was one of the first to be discontinued.

Ex "Scarsdale" and Curtis. 1998 P.F. certificate as Mint N.H. no longer accompanies. With 2004 P.S.E. certificate (OG, XF-Superb 95; SMQ $4,500.00). This is the only guide line pair awarded this high grade with none higher. The highest Mint N.H. line pair is graded 90
