Here's the full story from Bileski's description that accompanied the 1975 stamps. Note the coin toss...

Wonderful! Thank Ron.

The moment those two collectors, saw the matched pair,
I would loved to have been a fly on the wall.

I have had a lesser find of two common, separated stamps,
realising a Pmk went across the two, from a swap glassine.

On an aside, here is another of K. Bileski's projects:

I have no memory of what I sent to make up the $6 in stamps, but off it went, and soon two sets came in the mail.

Here is one page from each of the sets.

I still don't know what to do with them, but every now and then I'll come on them again. For a few moments, start to make plans as to start matching stamps to maps and forming a "one of" collection. But then, back they go into the wrapper and back in the box.
