Sale 1266 — The Melvin Getlan Collection of U.S. Vending & Affixing Machine Perfs, Part 2
Sale Date — Wednesday, 19 October, 2022
Category — The Farwell Company, Group 5 Perforations
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.
Ex Cline. With 2014 P.F. certificate
