About Stamp Coil

The U.S. Postal Service first began to issue coil stamps in 1908. The government issued these stamps to the public to speed up mail delivery. The coils released by the government came in sheets of 500 to 1,000. Generally, these stamps were separated by perforations. Most common is vertical perforation, but you can also find coiled stamps with horizontal perforation.After seeing how well the coiled stamps functioned for the government, some private institutions and post offices followed suit and developed their own mechanical stamp coil dispensers. During the initial days of this technology, postal workers manually prepared stamp coils for dispensing. Later, machines employed what was known as a rotary press to relieve workers of this duty.Stamp coil dispensing proved far more efficient and cost-effective than booklet and sheet stamp dispensing. Recent innovations in the technology have made it even more practical. Today's U.S. Postal Service dispenses self-adhesive coiled stamps. The way this process works is similar to the way that adhesive tape dispensers work. Customers can effectively peel off stamps as need be.The United States is not the only country to have employed coil stamping. Sweden has used a variant of the technology since the 1920s, and most post offices set up within the past 40 years employ some variation on the technology. When evaluating a coil stamp's condition, check to see whether or not the perforations are intact, and keep an eye out for ''privately printed'' coil stamps, which are generally far more valuable.
