Sale 920, Lot 181, 1902-08 Issues1c Blue Green, Coil (318). Pair, lightly hinged, dark color and proof-like impression, wide and balanced margins for this difficult issue

VERY FINE-EXTREMELY FINE. A CHOICE PAIR OF THE RARE ONE-CENT 1908 HORIZONTAL COIL.

Armstrong notes that by 1980 approximately 80 pairs had been certified by the Philatelic Foundation.

Right stamp with backstamp. With 1956 and 1996 P.F. certificates. With 2005 P.S.E. certificate grading this superb pair a mere VF 80 (SMQ $13,000.00). We feel that the P.S.E. grade is too conservative -- this is certainly one of the finest pairs known.
