VERY FINE AND CHOICE PAIR OF THE 2-CENT VERTICAL COIL, SCOTT 449.

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. 21, 1915).

Ex Laehder. With 1993 P.F. certificate.

EXTREMELY FINE MINT NEVER-HINGED JOINT LINE PAIR OF THE 1916 3-CENT COIL, SCOTT 456.

Scott 456 was the first 3c stamp to be printed on the Stickney rotary printing press. It was current for a little over a year. The joint line occurred after every 17 stamps, so is considerably scarcer and more difficult to obtain in higher grades than a normal pair.

With 2016 P.S.E. certificate (XF 90; SMQ $3,950.00). Only one has been graded higher (at 95) and this is the only example to achieve this grade.
