I, "Orangeburg Coil", perf. 12 vert., an especially fresh and bright example of this major coil rarity, exhibiting the deep violet color that is typical of the genuine stamps, tied to an unusually clean bluish green cover of Bell & Company Incorporated Manufacturing Chemists of Orangeburg, New York, March 8, 1911 earliest documented usage, featuring a fully printed "Orangeburg, N.Y./Mar 8 1911" machine cancel, posted to Berwyn, Pa. and backstamped there, the stamp after lifting for examination was found to have small paper flaws and wrinkles as nearly all examples have due to the bulky nature of the pharmaceutical enclosures, still a very fine and exceedingly attractive cover. The Orangeburg coil was specifically issued by the Post Office Department for the use of the Bell Pharmaceutical Co. to mail their samples of antacid to doctors around the country. Apparently no collectors were aware of the issue because of its commercial use by this one firm. The samples were actually quite bulky and the stamp paid the triple domestic fourth class (samples of merchandise) rate. Cancels also show that they were run through the first class canceling machine. Both of these factors explain why nearly all of the few known covers are wrinkled and soiled, a condition that usually affects the stamps as well. Furthermore, because of all of these circumstances, very few covers or even stamps from this bulk mailing were saved as such items were routinely thrown away, making for one of the rarest coils issues in United States philately.The cover offered here stands out among the very small population of only about fifteen covers in two ways. First and foremost, this is the earliest documented usage being used in early March within a very short period of when the stamp was supposedly issued in late January. Many of the known covers are used months later. Secondly, this is one of the most attractive of the covers, retaining its blue green color and lacking the usual soiling and strong wrinkles that are found on others, plus the stamp is bright and attractive. A great cover rarity of immense historical significance to the Washington-Franklin collector. Signed by Ward and accompanied by a clear 1998 PF certificate; ex-Ward, Southgate and "Alpha".
