Lot 1651 o   

1916, 2¢ carmine, type II, horizontal coil, line pair, Rock Island duplex cancel, brilliant color, well centered, faint diagonal crease barely visible from reverse only, Very Fine appearance; with 2018 P.F. certificate.
Scott No. 491    $20,000.

AN ATTRACTIVE USED EXAMPLE OF THE 1916 2¢ TYPE II HORIZONTAL LINE PAIR COIL - A GREAT RARITY WITH TEN EXAMPLES RECORDED.

Of the ten certified examples, three are known in multiples larger than pairs. Out of these seven pairs, two are faulty and one has a machine cancel which has been called into question. This leaves four sound line pairs which most of these have heavy or detracting cancellations. This example, although bearing a hidden fault, certainly is one of the most attractive that one can obtain.
