Sale Number 1111, Lot Number 474, 1913-15 Washington-Franklin Issues, Cont. (Scott 449-461)2c Red, Ty. I, Coil (449), 2c Red, Ty. I, Coil (449)2c Red, Ty. I, Coil (449). Mint N.H. pair, classic shade of the Rotary Type I coil, nicely balanced margins

VERY FINE MINT NEVER-HINGED PAIR OF THE 1915 2-CENT TYPE I VERTICAL COIL.

The 2c Type I rotary plate was used very briefly to make vertical coils issued in late 1915. It was briefly used because the Type I plate was not very deeply engraved and the curvature of the rotary press yielded impressions lacking in some of the details. The Bureau noticed this immediately, and quickly replaced it with the Type III plate (according to Scott, the EDU for No. 449 is Oct. 29, 1915, and the EDU for Type III is Dec. 10, 1915).

Ex Hall. With 1991 and 2006 P.F. certificates (F-VF 75). With 2015 P.S.E. certificate (F-VF 75; SMQ $8,250.00). Only one Mint N.H. pair of Scott 449 has been graded higher (at 80, also three joint line pairs)
