Lot Sym. Lot Description  
254 nh image2c Carmine, Ty. II, Coil (491). Mint N.H. joint line pair, rich color, detailed impression, beautiful centering for this difficult issue

VERY FINE. AN EXTREMELY RARE MINT NEVER-HINGED JOINT LINE PAIR OF THE 2-CENT ROTARY TYPE II JOINT LINE PAIR.

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 13 years of our auctions, revealed only two other Mint N.H. joint line pairs (one with perfs noticeably into the design at right). We have also only offered only one Mint N.H. pair and two Mint N.H. singles.

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A GORGEOUS MINT NEVER-HINGED EXAMPLE OF THE PERF 11 5-CENT ERROR OF COLOR. THIS STUNNING STAMP HAS BEEN AWARDED THE GRADE OF SUPERB 98 BY P.S.E. -- ONLY ONE HAS GRADED HIGHER TO DATE.

During the course of production of the normal 2c plate No. 7942, three positions were noted to be defective. The plate was sent back to the siderographer, who burnished out the three positions and mistakenly re-entered them using a transfer roll for the 5c stamp. The error passed unnoticed and the sheets were issued to the public both Perf 10, Imperforate and Perf 11 (Scott 467, 485 and 505).

With 2005 P.S.E. certificate (Superb 98, SMQ $9,900.00). Only one has graded higher (Gem 100) and only three others have been awarded the grade of 98. (Image)

263 nh image2c Carmine (519). Mint N.H., unusually choice centering with well-proportioned margins, radiant color and detailed impression

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A BEAUTIFUL MINT NEVER-HINGED EXAMPLE OF SCOTT 519. A MAGNIFICENT STAMP IN EVERY RESPECT. THIS IS EASILY ONE OF THE FINEST EXAMPLES OF THIS STAMP IN EXISTENCE, AND HAS BEEN AWARDED THE GRADE OF SUPERB 98 BY P.S.E.

This stamp was created in 1917 when a small excess supply of the imperforate Scott 344 was returned by the New York City post office to the Bureau for credit. Rather than issue the credit, the Bureau perforated the sheets and returned them to the New York City post office for public sale.

With 2004 P.S.E. certificate (Superb 98, SMQ $9,100.00). Only three have attained this lofty grade, which is the highest awarded to date. (Image)

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A HUGE MINT NEVER-HINGED EXAMPLE OF THE $2.00 ORANGE RED & BLACK 1918 FRANKLIN ISSUE, WHICH HAS BEEN AWARDED THE GRADE OF XF-SUPERB 95 JUMBO BY P.S.E

With 1997 and 2007 P.S.E. certificates (XF-Superb 95 Jumbo, SMQ $4,650.00 as 95, $9,000.00 as 98). Only two have been awarded this grade, and only three have graded higher to date (in our opinion, this stamp deserves a Superb 98 grade without the Jumbo appellation). (Image)
