EXTREMELY FINE MINT NEVER HINGED EXAMPLE OF THE $1.00 WASHINGTON ISSUE, SCOTT 342.

The experimental Bluish Paper issue of 1909 was created as part of an effort to combat paper shrinkage, which resulted in a high rate of spoilage and off-center stamps in the earlier 1908 issue, to which this $1.00 Washington belongs. Many values of the set, particularly the high values, are difficult to find in centered Mint N.H. condition.

Ex Dr. Morris. With 1988 and 1994 P.F. certificates

VERY FINE AND RARE GUIDE LINE PAIR OF THE 10-CENT HORIZONTAL COIL, SCOTT 356.

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 1988 and 1992 P.F. certificates
