Sale 1247, Lot 536, 1910-13 Washington-Franklin Issue (Scott 374-396)3c Deep Violet, Orangeburg Coil (389). Rich color, wavy-line machine cancel, thin spot at left and light creases

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. Because the coil stamps were used on envelopes containing products, many of the surviving copies are faulty to some extent.

Stanley Gibbons backstamp. Accompanied by 1958 letter of authenticity from Bernard D. Harmer (when purchased at auction by the consignor's family).
