Sale 1134, Lot 295, 1908-12 Washington-Franklin Issues (Scott 331-356)10c Yellow, Coil (356). Lightly hinged, brilliant color, well-centered with wide margins

VERY FINE AND CHOICE. A FRESH AND BEAUTIFULLY CENTERED PAIR OF THE SCARCE 10-CENT PERF 12 COIL.

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 1971 and 1991 P.F. certificates
