VERY FINE AND CHOICE EXAMPLE OF THE 5-CENT IMPERFORATE ERROR IN A BLOCK OF NINE.

During the course of production of the normal 2c plate No. 7942, three positions were noted to be defective. The plate was returned to the siderographer, who burnished out the three positions and mistakenly re-entered them using a transfer roll for the 5c stamp. The error passed unnoticed and the sheets were issued to the public Perf 10, Imperforate and Perf 11 (Scott 467, 485 and 505). The imperforate is by far the rarest of the three.

FINE APPEARANCE. A RARE USED JOINT LINE PAIR OF THE 2-CENT ROTARY TYPE II, SCOTT 491. OUR CENSUS RECORDS JUST 12 USED JOINT LINE MULTIPLES.

Unlike many other issues, the horizontal coil is actually scarcer than the vertical coil. It was in production for only a short period of time before being replaced by the Type III, Scott 492.

Our census of used joint line multiples of Scott 491, available at our website at https://siegelauctions.com/census/us/scott/491 , records ten joint line pairs, a strip of three, and a strip of five. Most are off-center either top to bottom or side to side or both.

FINE. AN EXCEEDINGLY RARE USED EXAMPLE OF THE ONE-CENT GREEN 1917 ISSUE PERFORATED 10 AT TOP. ONLY FIVE USED EXAMPLES OF THIS RARITY ARE RECORDED.

At a certain point during production one of the perforating wheels became defective. In the course of repairs part of one perforation wheel was inadvertently changed from Perf 11 to Perf 10. Based on the physical evidence of surviving copies, this was the nineteenth row of pins on the wheel.

Many examples of the Perf 10 on One Side rarities show transitional perfs from 10 to 11 or from 11 to 10. This is because the out-of-gauge perforation pins would frequently cross the span of more than one stamp, depending on where the wheel contacted the sheet.

The Perf 10 on One Side varieties span both the 1917 Washington-Franklin and 1922-23 Issues. It is interesting to note that, apart from the 2c, there is no duplication of denomination between the issues. This would seem to indicate that the improperly repaired wheel was in use for only a short period of time, as there was little overlap in production of the issues. Based on dates of issue of the basic stamps, this probably occurred early in 1923.

Our census of this rarity, available at https://siegelauctions.com/census/us/scott/498g , contains 12 unused (including two in a block of four, four in a block of 25 and and two in a plate block of six) and seven used examples (two are part of a block).

FINE. A RARE SOUND EXAMPLE OF THE 2-CENT A.E.F. BOOKLET PANE. IT IS BELIEVED THAT NO MORE THAN 20 EXIST IN ANY CONDITION.

The A.E.F. booklet panes were issued in September 1917, primarily for use by the American Expeditionary Forces in Europe during World War I. Only 3,000 panes were prepared of both the 1c and 2c denominations. By October they were no longer needed, as Congress voted to allow mail to be sent free of charge by active members of the Armed Forces. Many of the panes were destroyed. A Power Search review shows many surviving examples have faults.

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB USED EXAMPLE OF THE 2-CENT DEEP ROSE TYPE Ia, GRADED SUPERB 98 BY P.S.E. THIS IS THE HIGHEST GRADE AWARDED.

The Type Ia Scott 500 was created during an experiment at the Bureau in creating a new type of transfer roll. A die was made from the old Type I transfer roll, containing ten impressions. A new transfer roll was then made, using the new ten-impression master die. This new transfer roll was then used to create two new plates. There are distinct differences between the plates created using this method and the old method of using a one-die impression to create the transfer roll.

With 2018 P.S.E. certificate (Superb 98; unpriced in SMQ above the grade of 95J, SMQ as 95J $1,750.00). This is the highest grade awarded to a used Scott 500 and it is shared by no others
