Sale 1262, Lot 981, 1912-23 Issues2c Red, Ty. I, Coil (449). Joint line pair, original gum, lightly hinged, expertly rejoined, intense shade and impression, remarkably choice centering for this difficult Rotary coil issue

EXTREMELY FINE APPEARANCE. A BEAUTIFUL JOINT LINE PAIR OF THE 2-CENT VERTICAL COIL, SCOTT 449. VERY SCARCE IN ANY CONDITION.

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).

Ex Laehder. With 1992 and 2011 P.F. certificates not noting rejoining. With 2022 P.S.E. certificate stating "It is genuine, o.g., previously hinged, coil joint line pair, the stamps rejoined"
