FRESH AND VERY FINE. A RARE SOUND EXAMPLE OF THE 2-CENT HARDING ROTARY PERF 11. ONE OF ONLY A FEW SOUND EXAMPLES WHERE THE PERFORATIONS DO NOT TOUCH THE DESIGN.

Our census of the 2c Harding Rotary Perf 11 as (published in our Zoellner sale catalogue and updated at our website at www.siegelauctions.com/enc/census/613/613.htm) records 40 used singles (one faintly cancelled, if at all) and two used pairs. Of the singles, 23 are sound, but of these only five rate a grading of Very Fine or Extremely Fine. The stamp offered here is one of the few choice sound examples.

The 2c Harding Rotary Perf 11 stamp was discovered in 1938 by Leslie Lewis of the New York firm, Stanley Gibbons Inc. Gary Griffith presents his hypothesis in United States Stamps 1922-26 that rotary-printed sheets of 400 were first reduced to panes of 100 and then fed through the 11-gauge perforating machine normally used for flat plate sheets. This method distinguishes sheet-waste stamps -- Scott 544, 596 and 613 -- from the coil-waste stamps and explains the existence of a straight-edge on Scott 613.

Census No. 613-CAN-07. Ex Bettin, Stollnitz and "Connoisseur". With 1976 S.P.A. certificate. With 1977, 1992 and 2004 P.F. certificates. Scott Catalogue value is based on grade of Fine.
