FINE APPEARANCE AND EXTREMELY RARE. APPROXIMATELY TEN USED PAIRS AND ONE USED GUIDE LINE STRIP OF FOUR ARE KNOWN TO US.
This 2c coil was in production for only a short period of time before being superseded by the Perf 8-1/2 issue. 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.
Approximately ten used pairs are known. The only used guide line multiple we record is the strip of four from our Natalee Grace sale, which is specifically mentioned as being unique in Scott Catalogue (Sale 1028, lot 357).
Ex "Natalee Grace" and Curtis. With 1978 A.P.S., 1999 and 2015 P.F. certificates
