VERY FINE AND CHOICE. A SCARCE MINT NEVER-HINGED GUIDE LINE PAIR OF THE 2-CENT VERTICAL COIL, SCOTT 386.

According to Johl (Vol. 1, p. 111), the Bureau switched to Perf 8-1/2 for their coils after a very short period of time. The Perf 12 coils proved to be too susceptible to falling apart in the machines used to affix (and make) the coils. Scott 386 was one of the first to be discontinued. Only one Mint N.H. guide line pair has been certified to date by P.S.E. (graded 70), and we have offered only perhaps a dozen since keeping computerized records.

Ex Odeneal. With 2007 P.F. certificate. In our opinion this is underpriced in Scott in Mint N.H. condition, an opinion shared by SMQ, which prices this at $3,300.00 in the grade of 80. (Image)

VERY FINE GUIDE LINE PAIR OF THE 2-CENT HORIZONTAL COIL, SCOTT 388.

This 2c coil was in production for only a short period of time before being superseded by the Perf 8-1/2 issue.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.

ORANGEBURG COIL, SCOTT 389. ONLY TWO UNU3c Deep Violet, Orangeburg Coil (389). Pair, full original gum, deep rich color and proof-like impression, centered to left but completely sound

FINE. AN EXCEEDINGLY RARE ORIGINAL-GUM PAIR OF THE 3-CENT ORANGEBURG COIL, SCOTT 389. ONLY TWO UNUSED SINGLES AND SIX UNUSED PAIRS ARE AVAILABLE TO COLLECTORS. ONE OF THE GREATEST RARITIES OF 20TH CENTURY UNITED STATES PHILATELY.

The Orangeburg coil was made by the Post Office Department in 1911, specifically for use by the Bell Pharmaceutical Company. The 3c coil stamps were used to send samples of their products to physicians. Due to the quantity of mail, they were put through the first-class cancelling machine at Orangeburg, New York. The Orangeburg coil stamps' use on third-class mail and the fact that philatelists were generally unaware of their production account for their rarity.

A census of the Orangeburg coil, published in The Philatelic Foundation's Opinions VII book, records two singles and seven unused pairs, including one in the Miller collection at The New York Public Library. We recall seeing only one other pair at auction in the past 15 years.
