VERY FINE AND RARE GUIDE LINE PAIR OF THE 1910 2-CENT PERF 12 COIL WITH SINGLE-LINE WATERMARK, SCOTT 388.

The 2c single-line watermark horizontal coil, Scott 388, was in production for only a short period of time before being superseded by the Perf 8-1/2 issue, Scott 393.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

Light pencil notations on gum. With 1972 P.F. certificate

Sale Number 1166, Lot Number 982, 1910-13 Washington-Franklin Issue (Scott 374-396)3c Deep Violet, Orangeburg Coil (389), 3c Deep Violet, Orangeburg Coil (389)3c Deep Violet, Orangeburg Coil (389). Wide margins, deep rich color, neat wavy-line machine cancel used at Orangeburg N.Y.

VERY FINE. A RARE SOUND EXAMPLE OF THE 3-CENT ORANGEBURG COIL WITH WIDE MARGINS.

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 far nicer than most.

With 2017 P.F. certificate
