EXTREMELY FINE USED PAIR OF THE RARE 2-CENT TYPE VII IMPERFORATE OFFSET STAMP. THIS IS THE ONLY USED MULTIPLE WE HAVE OFFERED SINCE KEEPING COMPUTERIZED RECORDS.

According to Armstrong, the imperforates were issued to satisfy the needs of the last remaining private coil manufacturer. The Mail-O-Meter Company merged with the Schermack Company and so these issues are also known with the Schermack Type III perforations, such as are also seen on Scott 314A and 482A. However, a small supply of the imperforate 2c Type VII stamps without Schermack perfs did reach the public.

Our informal review of auction catalogues and the records of the Philatelic Foundation found four blocks of four and nine pairs, of which only four are sound. The example offered here is the only used multiple we have offered since keeping computerized records, which includes all of our Rarities sales and auctions going back to 1993.

Ex Sheriff (as a block), Twigg-Smith and Natalee Grace. 1971 P.F. certificate as a block no longer accompanies. With 2018 P.S.E. certificate (XF 90; SMQ $4,000.00)

With 1990 P.F. certificate.
