Wide margins to just in at bottom, deep rich color, neat wavy-line machine cancel used at Orangeburg N.Y., hinged to piece of cover and so free of the usual light creases endemic to this issue

FINE AND RARE SOUND EXAMPLE OF THE 3-CENT ORANGEBURG COIL.

The 3c Orangeburg coil was made by the Post Office Department in 1911, specifically for use by the Bell Pharmaceutical Company. They were used to send product samples to physicians and were put through the first-class cancelling machine at Orangeburg, New York. Due to the coil stamps' use on mass mailings, many of the surviving copies are faulty to some extent. The most common defects are corner creases or tears. This sound copy is the exception to the condition norms for this issue.

With 1992 P.F. and 2010 P.S.E. certificates
