In 1911, Bell Pharmaceutical Co. in Orangeburg, New York placed a small order of the new 3¢ coil stamps to send some physician's samples. These stamps were considered by collectors at the time to be inferior because they had not just one, but two straight edges at top and bottom and many of the stamps had creases and tears. It wasn't realized until later the importance of these experimental stamps to philately. Out of this supply originated what became one of the great rarities of philately… the "Orangeburg" coil
