Sale 1235, Lot 1260, 1902-08 Issues (Scott 300-320)5c Blue, Coil (317). Pair, original gum, lightly hinged, deep rich color

VERY FINE. AN ATTRACTIVE ORIGINAL-GUM PAIR OF THE RARE 5-CENT 1908 VERTICAL COIL, SCOTT 317.

According to Johl, these first government coils were an experiment, and collectors and dealers were generally unaware of their existence. Regular sheets of 400 were printed and then perforated in only one direction. They were then cut into strips of 20. The strips were hand pasted together to form rolls. As such, they are almost always strongly centered to one side.

With 1994 P.F. certificate
