From 1937-45, Japan issued a set of definitives (Scott #257-75). In addition, four of the values were issued as a set of vertical coils (Scott #276-79). The coil set is far scarcer than the basic definitives, with a printing of only 50,000, and a Scott '10 Catalog Value of $ 89.75 as unused.
Like many such coil varieties, this set is overlooked and undervalued. It will not remain so.
