VERY FINE AND CHOICE EXAMPLE OF SCOTT 594. ONE OF THE RAREST TWENTIETH CENTURY STAMPS IN SOUND AND CENTERED CONDITION.

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 11-gauge flat-plate perforator in use at the time, giving the sheets full perforations on all sides. The existence of Scott 594 was not reported until four months after the final sheets were delivered, and the 1c Rotary Perf 11 was soon recognized as one of the rarest United States stamps.

Our recently completed exhaustive census of Scott 594, available at our website at: http://www.siegelauctions.com/enc/census/594/594.htm, contains 89 used singles, four used pairs and five covers (including one with a pair) for a total of 103 used stamps. Many have perforations either in on one or more side, or have faults.

Census No. 594-CAN-52. With 1997 P.F. certificate

Three unusually wide margins for this rarity, perfs barely touch at bottom, sharp impression, neat machine cancel, small thin spot and light vertical crease are not clearly evident

FINE APPEARANCE. A RARE EXAMPLE OF THE 2-CENT HARDING ROTARY PERF 11, WITH THREE ENORMOUS MARGINS.

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 42 used singles (one faintly cancelled, if at all) and two used pairs. Of the singles, 25 are sound, but of these only six rate a grading of Very Fine or Extremely Fine.

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.
