2020 Rarities of the World continued...

Washington-Franklin and Panama Pacific Issues
Lot Sym. Lot Description  
194 nh Image4c Orange Brown, Bluish (360). Mint N.H. with wide top selvage, deep rich color on nicely blued paper, long and full perforations

FRESH AND FINE. AN EXTREMELY RARE MINT NEVER-HINGED EXAMPLE OF THE 4-CENT ON BLUISH PAPER. WE HAVE OFFERED ONLY TWO MINT NEVER-HINGED SINGLES SINCE KEEPING COMPUTERIZED RECORDS.

The June 1910 Third Assistant Postmaster General’s report states that 4,400 (eleven sheets) of the 4c were printed on Bluish Paper. It is believed that none of the 4c and 8c Bluish Paper stamps were distributed to post offices, and that all of the examples in collectors’ hands reached the market through the Travers-Steinmetz exchange and the 1914 National Museum trades to H. F. Colman (12 copies) and Nassau Stamp Company (65 copies).

We have offered only two Mint N.H. singles since keeping computerized records. The most recent was in our 2009 Whitman sale, which had similar top selvage with the plate number. The other was offered in our 2007 sale of the "Scarsdale" collection and was graded 75. Two are contained in the unique imprint and plate number strip of three, which is unlikely to be broken.

With 1999 and 2019 P.F. certificates (Image)

FRESH AND FINE ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 4-CENT ON BLUISH PAPER.

The June 1910 Third Assistant Postmaster General’s report states that 4,400 (eleven sheets) of the 4c were printed on Bluish Paper. It is believed that none of the 4c and 8c Bluish Paper stamps were distributed to post offices, and that all of the examples in collectors’ hands reached the market through the Travers-Steinmetz exchange and the 1914 National Museum trades to H.

197 c Image3c Deep Violet, Orangeburg Coil (389). Centered to right, small tear at top, lifted and hinged in place, tied by "Orangeburg N.Y. May 1 5PM 1911" wavy-line machine cancel on light blue envelope with "Bell & Company Incorporated Manufacturing Chemists" corner card to White Plains N.Y., May 2 receiving backstamp, cover with small scuff spots at left from erased pencil notations of no consequence

FINE APPEARANCE. A RARE ON-COVER USE OF THE 3-CENT ORANGEBURG COIL. ONLY 13 ORANGEBURG COIL COVERS HAVE BEEN CERTIFIED AS GENUINE BY THE PHILATELIC FOUNDATION.

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 accounts for their rarity.

With 1991 P.F. certificate. Signed Raymond H. Weill and Spencer Anderson (Image)

FINE APPEARING EXAMPLE OF THE RARE 3-CENT ORANGEBURG COIL.

This coil was used exclusively by Bell Pharmaceutical Co. in Orangeburg N.Y. to mail physician's samples. Due to their use on mass mailings, many of the existing Orangeburg coils are faulty to some extent. The most common defects are corner creases or tears. (Image)

200° ogbl Image1c Green, Perf 12 x 10 (423A). Block of four, centered to top as are virtually all known unused examples, deep rich color, natural straight edge at left

VERY GOOD. THIS IS THE ONE OF ONLY TWO UNUSED BLOCKS OF FOUR OF THE 1914 ONE-CENT PERF 12 x 10 ISSUE. A GREAT RARITY OF 20TH CENTURY PHILATELY.

The other block contains two Mint N.H. and two with tiny thins. All genuine stamps are off-center to some degree, with the perfs touching at top on all but three. The only other block known of any of the Compound Perf issues is the used block of four of Scott 423A, from the "Sirron" collection and last offered in Siegel Sale 1209 (lot 1261).

203 og Image2c Red, Ty. I, Coil (449). Joint line pair, bottom stamp lightly hinged, top stamp disturbed gum with loss of about half, brilliant color and detailed impression.

FINE-VERY FINE JOINT LINE PAIR OF THE RARE 1915 2-CENT TYPE I VERTICAL COIL, SCOTT 449.

The 2c Type I rotary plate was used very briefly to make vertical coils issued in late 1915. It was briefly used because the Type I plate was not very deeply engraved and the curvature of the rotary press yielded impressions lacking in some of the details. The Bureau noticed this immediately, and quickly replaced it with the Type III plate (according to Scott, the EDU for No. 449 is Oct. 29, 1915, and the EDU for Type III is Dec. 10, 1915).

With 1996 P.S.E. certificate stating "part o.g." (Image)
