Sale 1111, Lot 363, 1910-13 Washington-Franklin Coils (Scott 385-396)2c Carmine, Coil (388). Guide line pair, lightly hinged, intense color and proof-like impression, beautiful centering with wide margins

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The 2c single-line watermark horizontal coil, Scott 388 was in production for only a short period of time before being superseded by the Perf 8-1/2 issue, Scott 393.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.

Ex Silver Lake and "Golden Oak". With 2001 and 2014 P.F. certificates

Sale 1111, Lot 376, 1910-13 Washington-Franklin Coils (Scott 385-396)5c Blue, Coil (396). Pair, fresh color and paper, wide margins with choice centering, unobtrusive duplex cancel, P.S.E. mentions shorter perf at upper left but it is fully formed so we believe a harsh call, Extremely Fine, with 1992 P.F. and 2006 P.S.E. certificates (XF 90; SMQ $600.00), we gather this would have graded 95 without the perf call
