235° og imageAttleboro Stamp Co., 2c Alaska-Yukon (371). Guide line strip of four, full original gum, bright color, the delicate vending perforations sensibly reinforced

VERY FINE. AN EXCEEDINGLY RARE GUIDE LINE STRIP OF FOUR OF THE 2-CENT ALASKA-YUKON ISSUE WITH ATTLEBORO PRIVATE VENDING MACHINE PERFORATIONS. ONE OF THE GREAT RARITIES OF PRIVATE VENDING MACHINE COLLECTING.

In 1909 the Attleboro Stamp Company employed a stamp-affixing machine to apply postage to bulk mailings of its price lists and editions of the Attleboro Philatelist. Although the company served stamp collectors, the Attleboro coil appears to have been a purely utilitarian product, limited in its scope to the basic 1c and 2c stamps necessary for mailing and not intended to create new varieties for collectors. Examples of these coils are scarce to rare.

236° nh image2c Carmine, Coil (388). Mint N.H., deep rich color and proof-like impression, gorgeous centering with unusually wide and balanced margins

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A MAGNIFICENT MINT NEVER-HINGED EXAMPLE OF THE 2-CENT HORIZONTAL COIL, SCOTT 388. THIS STAMP HAS BEEN AWARDED THE GRADE OF SUPERB 95 BY P.S.E., WHICH IS THE HIGHEST GRADE AWARDED TO DATE.

This 2c coil was in production for only a short period of time before being superseded by the Perf 8-1/2 issue. Due to the greater popularity of the horizontal coils with users, combined with a wary attitude by many collectors that early coils were simply trimmed stamps, many were used and few preserved.

With 2007 P.S.E. certificate (XF-Superb 95, unpriced in SMQ above the grade of 90, SMQ $10,700.00 as 90). (Image)

EXTREMELY FINE MINT NEVER-HINGED EXAMPLE OF THE 10-CENT PERF 10 PANAMA-PACIFIC.
