207 og Image2c Rose, Ty. I, A.E.F. Booklet Pane (499f). Lightly hinged, bright color, choice centering for this difficult issue

VERY FINE EXAMPLE OF THE RARE 2-CENT A.E.F. BOOKLET PANE. THIS WELL-CENTERED EXAMPLE RANKS AMONG THE FINEST EXTANT.

The A.E.F. booklet panes were issued in September 1917, primarily for use by the American Expeditionary Forces in Europe during World War I. Only 3,000 panes were prepared of both the 1c and 2c denominations. By October they were no longer needed, as Congress voted to allow mail to be sent free of charge by active members of the Armed Forces. Many of the panes were destroyed. A Power Search review shows many surviving examples have faults.

208 nhbl Image1c Green, Perf 10 at Top or Bottom (498g). Mint N.H. block of 25 with plate no. 13366 at top right, four stamps in the block are the error, Perf 10 between positions 10 and 15 in the block, perfs between positions 9 and 14 are transitional (3 holes Perf 11 and 7 holes Perf 10), deep rich color, choice centering

EXTREMELY FINE. SINCE ITS DISCOVERY ABOUT 15 YEARS AGO, THIS HAS MAINTAINED ITS POSITION AS THE LARGEST RECORDED MULTIPLE OF THE ONE-CENT 1917 ISSUE WITH PERF 10 ON ONE SIDE. ONE OF THE GREAT 20TH?CENTURY RARITIES.

Our census of Scott 498g is available at https://siegelauctions.com/census/us/scott/498g. Tallying the number of stamps in a summary is complicated by the existence of multiples containing Perf 10 One Side and Transitional Perf 10/11 One Side stamps, as well Mint N.H. and hinged stamps in the same multiple. Here is the tally (current 5/25/2020):

Mint N.H. = 10 stamps (6=Perf 10 and 4=Transitional P10/11) -- 8 are in multiples

Previously Hinged = 2 stamps (both Perf 10) -- 1 is in a multiple

Used = 7 stamps (6=Perf 10 and 1=Transitional P10/11) -- 3 are in multiples

Accompanied by a dealer's old envelope which does not mention the Perf 10 on one side stamps and offers the block for $2.48. It is believed that the block was purchased from the post office in Rochester N.Y. and sat in a dealer's stock until its discovery about 15 years ago.

Census no. 498g-OG-BL-01. With 2006 P.F. certificate. Scott value $27,500.00 for Mint N.H. single (the same for transitional variety) -- total $110,000.00 (Image)

212 ogbl Image2c Carmine, Ty. VII, Imperforate (534B). Bottom plate no. 12305 block of six, lightly hinged, large margins all around, intense shade on bright fresh paper

VERY FINE AND EXCEEDINGLY RARE PLATE BLOCK OF THE 2-CENT TYPE VII IMPERFORATE OFFSET ISSUE, SCOTT 534B.

According to Armstrong, the imperforates were issued to satisfy the needs of the last remaining private coil manufacturer. The Mail-O-Meter Company merged with the Schermack Company and so these issues are known with the Schermack Type III perforations, also seen on Scott 314A and 482A. However, a small supply of the imperforate 2c Type VII stamps without Schermack perfs did reach the public. A Power Search review found only three other unduplicated plate blocks offered in our Rarities sale since 1964 and all of our auctions since 1994.

213 c Image1c Green, Rotary Perf 11 (544). Choice centering, tied by "Jackson Mich. 6:30PM Dec. 21, 1922" machine cancel on small cover to Albion Mich.

EXTREMELY FINE. A BEAUTIFUL EXAMPLE OF THE 1922 ONE-CENT ROTARY PERF 11 ON COVER. ONLY NINE POSTCARDS AND FIVE COVERS HAVE BEEN CERTIFIED AS GENUINE BY THE PHILATELIC FOUNDATION.

A small quantity of 1c Rotary Press stamps was perforated 11 at the end of 1922, using remainder sheets from the earlier printings that were normally perforated in 10 gauge or 10/11 compound gauge. Its existence as a Perf 11 variety was discovered in 1936, and the stamp received its Scott Catalogue listing in 1938.

Until the 2011 edition, the Scott Catalogue listed this cover as the earliest documented usage. The new edition lists the EDU as Dec. 17, 1922 based on a postcard expertized by APEX. This remains the earliest known use on a full cover. In addition to the 14 examples expertized by the P.F. there are a handful of others which have received A.P.S. certificates.
