Cat No: 449

image 2c Red, Ty. I, Coil (449). Mint N.H. joint line pair, exceptional centering with wide margins all around, brilliant color and detailed impression.

VERY FINE AND CHOICE. AN EXTRAORDINARILY RARE MINT NEVER-HINGED JOINT LINE PAIR OF THE 1915 2-CENT TYPE I VERTICAL COIL, SCOTT 449. AN OUTSTANDING RARITY.

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). The joint line pair offered here, in Mint N.H. condition and with such choice centering and color, is a major rarity. Only a handful exist in such condition.

With 2002 P.F. and 2014 P.S.E. certificates (VF 80; SMQ $28,000.00). This is one of only three Mint N.H. joint line pairs of Scott 449 to achieve this grade, with only one higher (at 90) (Image)

VERY FINE. A RARE MINT NEVER-HINGED PAIR OF THE 1915 2-CENT TYPE I VERTICAL COIL, SCOTT 449, FROM THE END OF THE COIL ROLL.

The 2c Type I rotary plate was used very briefly to make vertical coils issued in late 1915.

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB MINT NEVER-HINGED EXAMPLE OF THE 1915 2-CENT TYPE I VERTICAL COIL, SCOTT 449, GRADED XF-SUPERB 95 BY P.S.E. THIS IS THE HIGHEST GRADE AWARDED.

The 2c Type I rotary plate was used very briefly to make vertical coils issued in late 1915.

FINE APPEARANCE. AN EXTREMELY RARE USED JOINT LINE PAIR OF THE 2-CENT TYPE I VERTICAL COIL, SCOTT 449. ONE OF THE GREAT RARITIES OF UNITED STATES COIL COLLECTING.

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).

Our census of Scott 449 used joint line pairs, available at our website at https://siegelauctions.com/census/us/scott/449 , records a total of ten plus one in a strip of four and one in a strip of seven. Of these at least seven have faults and three have not been examined in recent years so condition is unknown to us.

Census No. 449-CAN-LP-10. Ex Curtis. With 1971, 2003 and 2015 P.F. certificates (Image)
