II, Imperforate (320Ad, formerly 320d)2c Carmine, Ty. II, Imperforate (320Ad, formerly 320d). Guide line pair, full Schermack Ty. III perforations as with all known examples, bold military slogan machine cancel

VERY FINE. A RARE USED GUIDE LINE PAIR OF THE 2-CENT IMPERFORATE CARMINE TYPE II DESIGN. ONE OF THE RAREST OF THE 2-CENT SHIELD ISSUES.

The Scott Catalogue notes that "No. 320Ad was issued imperforate, but all examples were privately perforated with large oblong perforations at the sides (Schermack Type III)." In this respect it is similar to its more expensive counterparts, Scott 314A and 482A.

The Type II imperforate Shield issue is only known in the Lake and Carmine colors. The Lake color exists fully imperforate. The Carmine color is only known with Schermack Type III perforations. We have been fascinated by this listing for some time, and undertook a census. For used examples, we initially recorded two singles. Since publishing our census, perhaps a half-dozen more, including two covers, have come to light.

With 2014 P.F. certificate. Unpriced in Scott.
