Sale Number 1209, Lot Number 1242, 1908-13 Washington-Franklin Issues (Scott 331-396)2c Carmine, Coil (353), 2c Carmine, Coil (353)2c Carmine, Coil (353). Guide line pair, rich color, neat oval cancels, completely sound, Fine and exceptionally rare, this is easily one of the most difficult Washington-Franklin line pairs to find genuinely used in any condition, we sold a Very Fine-Extremely Fine appearing line pair with small faults in the James Depew collection (Sale 1206, lot 390), apart from that example Power Search lists only two others, both with margins cut in at top, faults and rejoined -- really not comparable to this sound and intact line pair, with 2001 and 2019 P.S.E. certificates
