VERY FINE AND CHOICE. A SCARCE MINT NEVER-HINGED GUIDE LINE PAIR OF THE 2-CENT VERTICAL COIL, SCOTT 386.

According to Johl (Vol. 1, p. 111), the Bureau switched to Perf 8-1/2 for their coils after a very short period of time. The Perf 12 coils proved to be too susceptible to falling apart in the machines used to affix (and make) the coils. Scott 386 was one of the first to be discontinued and was available for less than two months before its perf 8-1/2 replacement became available (EDU for Scott 386 is Dec. 9, 1910, for Scott 391 it is Dec. 23).

Ex Hoffman. With 1999 P.F. certificate

VERY FINE AND CHOICE. A BEAUTIFUL GUIDE LINE PAIR OF THE RARE 1910 SINGLE-LINE WATERMARK 2-CENT HORIZONTAL COIL.

The 2c single-line watermark horizontal coil, Scott 388 was in production for only a short period of time before being superseded by the Perf 8-1/2 issue, Scott 393. In addition, due to the greater popularity of the horizontal coils with users, combined with a wary attitude by many collectors that early coils were simply trimmed stamps, many were used and few preserved.
