2603 nh Image2c Carmine, Ty. II, Coil (491). Mint N.H. joint line pair, radiant color, detailed impression on crisp paper, margins wide at top and bottom, ample at sides

VERY FINE AND EXTREMELY RARE MINT NEVER-HINGED JOINT LINE PAIR OF THE 2-CENT ROTARY TYPE II COIL, SCOTT 491.

Unlike many other issues, this horizontal coil is much scarcer than its the vertical coil counterpart (Scott 487). The Type II horizontal coil, Scott 491, was in production for only a short period of time before being replaced by the Type III, Scott 492. Only about a month separates the EDU's for the two coils (Dec. 19, 1916 for No. 491 and Jan. 13, 1917 for No. 492).

This coil in joint line pair format is exceedingly rare in Mint N.H. condition. A review of our computerized records using Power Search revealed only three other Mint N.H. joint line pairs.

Ex Whitman and Curtis. With 2004 P.F. and 2015 P.S.E. certificates (F 70; SMQ $12,000.00). Only two Mint N.H. joint line pairs are listed in the P.S.E. Population Report -- both graded 70 (Image)

EXTREMELY FINE. A VERY RARE CENTERED MINT NEVER-HINGED EXAMPLE OF THE 2-CENT ROTARY TYPE II COIL, SCOTT 491.

Unlike many other issues, this horizontal coil is much scarcer than its the vertical coil counterpart (Scott 487). The Type II horizontal coil, Scott 491, was in production for only a short period of time before being replaced by the Type III, Scott 492. Only about a month separates the EDU's for the two coils (Dec. 19, 1916 for No. 491 and Jan. 13, 1917 for No. 492).

With 1985 and 2016 P.F. certificates. With 2017 P.S.E. certificate (XF 90; SMQ $8,750.00). This is the highest graded Mint N.H. single of Scott 491 and no others share this grade. The next two highest examples are graded F 70 and VF 80. SMQ is woefully out of date as the last time we sold this stamp, in 2017, it realized $23,000 hammer (Image)

This pair was once part of a strip of three, which had a 1999 P.F. certificate (no. 338033, no longer accompanies) stating the two stamps in this pair have light creases. After separation from the third stamp (at left) this was resubmitted to both the P.F. and P.S.E. and received certificates as sound.
