Sale 1247, Lot 593, 1913-17 Washington-Franklin Issues (Scott 424-480)2c Red, Ty. I, Coil (449). Pair, original gum, bottom stamp with Scott no. pencil notations on gum, radiant color

FINE PAIR OF THE SCARCE 2-CENT VERTICAL COIL, SCOTT 449.

The 2c Type I rotary plate was used very briefly to make vertical coils issued in late 1915. It was briefly used because the Type I plate was not very deeply engraved and the curvature of the rotary press yielded impressions lacking in some of the details. The Bureau noticed this immediately, and quickly replaced it with the Type III plate (according to Scott, the EDU for No. 449 is Oct. 29, 1915 and the EDU for Type III is Dec. 10, 1915).

Sale 1247, Lot 605, 1913-17 Washington-Franklin Issues (Scott 424-480)5c Carmine, Error (467). Mint N.H. single error in a block of nine, error with outstanding centering, brilliant color and crisp impression on bright paper

EXTREMELY FINE GEM MINT NEVER-HINGED EXAMPLE OF THE 5-CENT PERF 10 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 in Perf 10, Imperforate and Perf 11 formats (Scott 467, 485 and 505).
