295 O 314A image#314A, 4c Brown, imperforate, Schermack Ty. III perforations, quite well centered within large margins, with unusually full Schermack Ty. III perforations showing at left, and virtually complete portions showing at right, sumptuously rich color and an excellent clarity of impression, neat usual wavy line machine cancel, extremely fine for this. This stamp was issued in April of 1908 at the request of the Schermack Mailing Machine Company in Detroit. The Schermack Company, the largest and most well-known of the private vending and affixing companies, used large quantities of the one and two cent stamps of the period for their private vending and affixing machines. One of their customers, the Winfield Printing Company, placed an order with the Schermack Company to supply them with four cent stamps so that two of their clients, Hamilton Carhatt (a manufacturer of overalls and other men's clothing) and the Burroughs Adding Machine Company, could use the stamps to pay postage for sending their printed matter such as circulars or samples. The Post Office supplied a total of 10,000 of the requested four cent imperforate stamps to the Schermack Company so that the sheets could be cut into strips, pasted together to form coil rolls and then furnished with their well-known "perforations" for dispensing in their machines. No one in the philatelic world was aware of this special order, and had it not been for the fortuitous presence of a Detroit collector named Karl Koslowski, perhaps even fewer of these rare stamps would exist. It is believed that Mr. Koslowski, who learned of these new stamps through a friend at the Schermack Company, acquired 50 of these unusual stamps before departing on a trip to his Latvian homeland. There is some question whether he first saw the stamps in their imperforate form, or he may not have seen them until they had already been cut up and perforated. In effect, virtually the only known examples of this stamp are due to Mr. Koslowski, who retained approximately 20 unused examples and used the remainder on personal mail. There are just a few more known used examples which were taken off the commercial mailings of the Hamilton Carhatt and Burroughs companies, for an approximate total of 45 used examples. The stamp offered here is among very finest available of this important rarity. In fact, only a very few of the existing population possesses Schermack perforations on both sides of the stamp, as the Schermack affixing machine, when dispensing these stamps, often cut off the perforations on one side. This stamp boasts such perforations on both sides, in addition to being exceptionally well centered, wonderfully bright and lightly cancelled. Accompanied by 1946 APS, 1982 and 2002 PF certificates; ex-Lessin. (Image) 40,000.00
