Lot #2119
United States 1908 Coil Stamps
1908 5c blue, perf. 12 horizontally, vertical coil pair, l.h., fresh and well centered for issue, nearly v.f., with 1968 and 1989 PFCs (According to Johl, these first government coils were an experiment, and collectors and dealers were generally unaware of their existence. Regular sheets of 400 were printed and then perforated in only one direction. They were then cut into strips of 20. The strips were then hand pasted together to form rolls. As such, they are almost always strongly centered to one side)
