VERY FINE AND SCARCE MINT NEVER-HINGED PAIR OF THE 2-CENT ROTARY TYPE II.

Unlike most other issues, the horizontal coil is actually scarcer than the vertical coil. It was in production for only a short period of time before being replaced by the Type III, Scott 492.

This coil is surprisingly rare in Mint N.H. condition. A review of our computerized records, which spans 20 years of our auctions, revealed only four other Mint N.H. pairs.

With copy of 1970 P.F. certificate for a strip of four
