221 nh image5c Jamestown (330). Mint N.H., almost perfectly centered with wide margins for this difficult issue, deep rich color on bright paper

EXTREMELY FINE. A BEAUTIFUL MINT NEVER-HINGED EXAMPLE OF THE 5-CENT JAMESTOWN ISSUE. SCARCE WITH SUCH WIDE MARGINS AND IN SUCH CHOICE CONDITION. THIS STAMP HAS BEEN AWARDED THE GRADE OF XF-SUPERB 95 BY P.S.E. -- THE HIGHEST GRADE AWARDED TO DATE.

222 og image2c Carmine, Imperforate Vertical Coil (344V). Strip of eleven with plate no. and star at top and also fourth position with foreign entry of 1c design, the foreign entry and few others Mint N.H., brilliant color

EXTREMELY FINE. A RARE STRIP OF ELEVEN OF THE 2-CENT IMPERFORATE FLAT PLATE COIL, SCOTT 344V, WITH THE PLATE NUMBER AND FOREIGN ENTRY OF THE ONE-CENT DESIGN.

This foreign-entry variety was caused when the 1c Franklin die transfer roll was used by mistake on plate 5299 -- the error was immediately caught and corrected by erasing the 1c entry, but the hairs from Franklin's head and traces of the "One Cent" remained on the plate. (Image)

223° nh image5c Blue, Coil (351). Mint N.H. pair, deep rich color on bright paper, perfectly centered with wide and balanced margins

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. THIS IS EASILY ONE OF THE FINEST MINT NEVER-HINGED PAIRS OF THE 5-CENT VERTICAL COIL IN EXISTENCE. IT HAS BEEN AWARDED THE GRADE OF SUPERB 98 BY P.S.E., WHICH IS THE HIGHEST GRADE AWARDED TO DATE. IT IS THE ONLY PAIR TO ACHIEVE THIS GRADE.

Interestingly, this is the only 5c Washington-Franklin vertical coil stamp ever produced. Demand proved to be so low that none others were made.

With 2001 P.F. and 2004 P.S.E. certificates (Superb 98, SMQ $7,450.00). This is the highest grade awarded to date, and is the only pair to achieve this grade. (Image)

226° nh image10c Yellow, Horizontal Coil, Perf 12 (356). Mint N.H. guide line pair, radiant color, post-office fresh

VERY FINE AND CHOICE. THE 10-CENT PERF 12 COIL IS EXCEEDINGLY RARE AS A GUIDE LINE PAIR IN THIS SUPERIOR GRADE AND MINT NEVER-HINGED CONDITION.

According to Johl (Volume 1, page 181), only 10,000 of the 10c Washington coil stamp were issued. They were made especially for a New York firm to send out advertising samples, similar to the 3c Orangeburg coil. Only a few rolls were sold to the firm, and the remaining rolls were distributed to some of the large post offices across the country. Dealers acquired several rolls, but because most contemporary collectors did not collect coils, many were used and destroyed.

A review of our computerized records revealed an astonishing fact: this is the only Mint N.H. guide line pair we have offered since keeping computerized records. Our computerized records encompass almost 13 years of auctions. In that time we have offered in Mint N.H. condition the following examples of Scott No. 356: 1) Mint N.H. guide line strip of four, ex Zoellner (Sale 804, lot 560, realized $35,000 hammer), 2) Mint N.H. single offered twice (once in Sale 848 and once in Sale 913), 3) Mint N.H. guide line pair, ex Silver Lake (Sale 866, lot 206, realized $47,500 hammer), the guide line pair offered here, and 4) the Mint N.H. pair offered in lot 227 of this sale.

With 1997 P.F. certificate for guide line strip of four and 2004 P.F. certificate as guide line pair. P.S.E. encapsulated (F-VF 75, SMQ $27,000.00 as 70, $50,000.00 as 80) -- grading is somewhat irrelevant for a rarity of this caliber. (Image)

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A MAGNIFICENT MINT NEVER-HINGED EXAMPLE OF THE ONE-CENT ON BLUISH PAPER. THIS CONDITION RARITY HAS BEEN AWARDED THE GRADE OF SUPERB 98 BY P.S.E. -- THIS IS THE ONLY EXAMPLE TO ACHIEVE THIS GRADE, AND ONLY ONE HAS GRADED HIGHER.

The Bluish paper stamps were made as part of an experiment to correct problems with paper shrinkage and spoilage. The existence of this stamp with such superb centering and huge margins is truly remarkable.

With 1996 P.F. and 2006 P.S.E. certificates (Superb 98, SMQ $5,750.00). The example graded 98 Jumbo was recently offered in our auction of the Scarsdale Collection, where it realized $15,500 hammer. (Image)
