I am checking my samples of 2187.

Scott Lists
2187 40 Claire Chennault overall tagging, dull gum
2187a 40 Claire Chennault PP coated, solid tagging, dull gum
2187av 40 Claire Chennault PP Coated,. Grainy solid tagging, low gloss gum
2187c 40 Claire Chennault PP Uncoated, mottled tagging,shiny gum

This is from Esrati's listing (20th revision)

I have 3 with shiny gum although I purchased one claiming to be low gloss gum.

Using Esrati's comment about 2187b (assume now called 2187c), I could identify it with both the striated gum and blue white under UV.

I have two others without striated gum and this show greenish-yellow so I am wondering if I have the unlisted Scott variety since Scott does not usually catalogue based upon color under UV or striated gum.

Transportation coils is one of my favorite modern series. I really appreciate your posts detailing variants. Thank you.
