EXTREMELY FINE. ONLY A FEW SOUND AND CENTERED EXAMPLES OF THE 1923 ONE-CENT ROTARY PERF 11 ISSUE EXIST. PROBABLY ONLY TWO OR THREE HAVE THE CENTERING AND MARGINS OF THIS SUPERB STAMP. A GREAT CONDITION RARITY.

The 1c Green, Scott 594, is waste from a horizontal rotary printing used to make coils. At the beginning or end of a coil-stamp print run from the 170-subject rotary plates, some leading or trailing paper was produced that was too short for rolling into 500-stamp rolls. In 1919 the Bureau devised a plan to salvage this waste by perforating and cutting the sheets into panes. They were put through the flat-plate perforator in use at the time, giving the sheets full perforations on all sides. In 1923 coil waste from the new 1c and 2c rotary production was turned into stamps later classified as Scott 578-579 and 594-595. These were the last of the coil-waste issues. Fewer than 100 of Scott 594 survive today.

With 1950, 1994 and 2004 P.F. certificates.
