VERY FINE AND CHOICE LIGHTLY-HINGED PAIR OF THE 1909 10-CENT HORIZONTAL COIL, SCOTT 356.

According to Johl (Volume 1, page 181), only 10,000 of the 10c Washington coil stamp were issued. They were made especially for a New York firm to send out advertising samples, similar to the 3c Orangeburg coil. Only a few rolls were sold to the firm, and the remaining rolls were distributed to some of the large post offices across the country. Dealers acquired several rolls, but because most contemporary collectors did not collect coils, many were used and destroyed.

With 1981 and 2000 P.F. certificates

Strip of three, vivid color, bold strikes of "Chiyo-Maru Sea Post 19. 7. 10." (July 19, 1910) double-circle datestamps, some perf separations reinforced with hinges

FINE. A RARE USED MULTIPLE OF THE 1909 10-CENT HORIZONTAL COIL, AND THE ONLY RECORDED EXAMPLE WITH THE "CHIYO-MARU" JAPANESE SEA POST OFFICE DATESTAMP.

Our census of Scott No. 356 in used multiples, available at http://siegelauctions.com/dynamic/census/356/356.pdf , contains twelve pairs, one strip of four and two strips of three. The other strip of three was offered in our Natalee Grace sale. Five of the pairs originated on the same cover, which was prepared by Henry Hammelman and mailed in August 1911. A guide line pair has been certified as genuine, but the cancel needs to be reexamined to see if it is one of the fakes produced during the last 20 years.

This strip was on a piece of mail postmarked on board the Japanese steamship Chiyo-Maru, which sailed from San Francisco on July 19, 1910. The "Chiyo-Maru Sea Post 19. 7. 10." (July 19, 1910) was applied by the official Sea Post Office clerk to mail posted on the ship. In this case, the letter was franked with at least three of the 10c 1909 horizontal coils.

Census No. 356-CAN-STR-09. With 1977 P.F. certificate. Scott Retail as pair and single
