VERY FINE APPEARANCE. A RARE GUIDE LINE STRIP OF FOUR OF THE FARWELL GROUP 5, SCOTT 384.

As discussed in the Belasco book, the Farwell Group 5 perforations are not easy to explain and likely resulted from errors in the company's production of its coils, rather than an intentional 4 over 5 hole or 5 over 4 hole perforation design.

VERY FINE AND CHOICE. A BEAUTIFUL AND RARE GUIDE LINE STRIP OF FOUR OF THE FARWELL GROUP 5 PERFORATIONS ON SCOTT 408.

The Belasco book (p. 98) notes these were perforated in error, and no uses are known. The book also notes that a guide line pair is the largest recorded multiple, so he must not have been aware of this strip.
