Scott No. 594; $10,500.

A HANDSOME SOUND AND LIGHTLY CANCELED EXAMPLE OF THE RARE 1923 1¢ GREEN ROTARY COIL WASTE PERF 11 ISSUE.

The coil waste issues came about from the unusable portions (or waste) the derived when producing coils from the horizontal rotary printings. In the case of the 1923 1¢ coil waste (594) the waste had not been previously perforated and therefore were entirely perforated with the flat plate perforator which gauged 11x11. Since the Bureau did not consider this "coil waste" a different issue, no formal announcement was issues prior to their release. It wasn't until 1925 that this issue was discovered in used condition and by the next year only four examples were on record.

AN ATTRACTIVE EXAMPLE OF THE 1923 1¢ ROTARY SHEET WASTE PERF 11 (SCOTT 596) ISSUE - A GREAT 20TH CENTURY RARITY WITH ONLY FIFTEEN EXAMPLES RECORDED.

This is without question the rarest United States issue of the 20th century. It was probably produced during the middle of 1924 however it was only discovered in 1962. This issue was the result of "coil waste" but rather than made from horizontal coil sheets, such as Scott #578-579 and #594-595, this issue was made from vertical coil waste sheets. The difference being in the measurement of the design as the horizontal coil design is wider since the plates have been stretched by curving them in that direction in order to fit the cylinder on the rotary press. In the same fashion, the vertical coil plates were curved in the vertical direction causing the design to stretch vertically.

To date, the Siegel census now contains fifteen examples of this issue of which over half are deemed faulty.
