FINE AND CHOICE JOINT LINE PAIR OF THE RARE TYPE I ROTARY PRESS VERTICAL COIL.
The 2c Type I rotary plate was used very briefly to make vertical coils issued in December 1915. It was superseded in February 1916 by the Type III plate. The early printing of the 2c rotary vertical coil was almost completely overlooked by contemporary collectors and dealers, who did not anticipate further production of vertical coils.

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. AN OUTSTANDING EXAMPLE OF THE 5-CENT IMPERFORATE ERROR, OF WHICH LESS THAN 50 SHEETS WERE RELEASED TO THE PUBLIC.
During the course of production of the normal 2c plate No. 7942, three positions were noted to be defective. The plate was sent back to the siderographer, who burnished out the three positions and mistakenly re-entered them using a transfer roll for the 5c stamp. The error passed unnoticed and the sheets were issued to the public both Perf 10, Imperforate and Perf 11 (Scott 467, 485 and 505).The imperforate is by far the rarest of the three.
