Choice centering for this difficult issue, neat wavy-lines machine cancel used at Orangeburg N.Y., just a small hinge thin near top

VERY FINE APPEARING EXAMPLE OF THE RARE ORANGEBURG COIL.

The Orangeburg coil was made by the Post Office Department in 1911 specifically for use by the Bell Pharmaceutical Company. The 3c coil stamps were used to send samples of their products to physicians. Due to the quantity of mail, they 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 example is better than most.
