Found this "coil stamp" in my father's collection as an extra. Was not cataloged. Vertical perf measures 9 3/4. Can anyone Identify?

Thank you, Don! I believe you are correct. I have had this stamp laying around for years not knowing what to do with it. Should have posted to this forum sooner!

I imagine it's the side selvage to the one cent battleship.

indeed a check of the Durland Catalog confirms revcollector's identification. It is side selvage and technically it is not a roulette, since little pieces of paper were punched out. The Scott U.S. Specialized uses the terminology of hyphen hole perforation 7. My philatelic mentor, the late Ernest Wilkens, preferred the old terminology slot perforated 7.

I noticed that, so you guys over the pond, really aren't sure what to call something.
That's 3 interpretations.

I was using the Samuel Crossman's (US) Handbook of Philately
I take your point, but I feel uncomfortable employing "Hyphen Hole"
as I imagine the coils with the big slots.
I will however, retain the 3 usages to memory.

Rod222 - The hyphen hole is not a roulette, since it actually removed paper leaving a hole the shape of a hyphen. It is a perforation. So the roulette terminology is not applicable. Also, these were applied to sheets of stamps, not coils.

Yes, I get that revenuer,
surely, you can understand, by my first post image, half of those "punctures"
look blind, therefore I was assuming a piercing, not removal of chads.
I understand the definitions, but to a novice US collector, on first inspection, they do look like slits from a roulette.
