Sale Number 1140, Lot Number 878, 1912-15 Washington-Franklin Issue (Scott 405-461)3c Violet, Coil (456), 3c Violet, Coil (456)3c Violet, Coil (456). Mint N.H. joint line pair, brilliant color, wide and balanced margins, perfs intact at sides with portions of adjoining stamps

EXTREMELY FINE MINT NEVER-HINGED JOINT LINE PAIR OF THE 1916 3-CENT COIL, SCOTT 456.

Scott 456 was the first 3c stamp to be printed on the Stickney rotary printing press. It was current for a little over a year. The joint line occurred after every 17 stamps, so is considerably scarcer and more difficult to obtain in higher grades than a normal pair.

With 2016 P.S.E. certificate (XF 90; SMQ $3,950.00). Only one has been graded higher (at 95) and this is the only example to achieve this grade.
