VERY FINE. AN EXTREMELY RARE MINT NEVER-HINGED JOINT LINE PAIR OF THE 2-CENT ROTARY TYPE II JOINT LINE PAIR.

Unlike most other issues, the horizontal coil is actually scarcer than the vertical coil. It was in production for only a short period of time before being replaced by the Type III, Scott 492.

This coil is surprisingly rare in Mint N.H. condition. A review of our computerized records, which spans 13 years of our auctions, revealed only one other Mint N.H. joint line pair (with perfs noticeably into the design at right). We have also only offered only one Mint N.H. pair and two Mint N.H. singles.

With 1998 P.F. certificate
