A little hard to tell but I believe they are scissor-trimmed. Maybe if you post a scan of the backside it is easier to tell

The 2c stamps trimmed at left, 3c trimmed at right. Did you check perforation? I believe these came in 3 formats- coils, booklet panes and sheet form. So they possibly may be (accidental or deliberate) scissor cut coils.

Edit: ooops! You did mention perfs. Dont have catalogue with me. The series came in the 3 formats.

Here's a scan of the backs.


I'd assumed they couldn't be booklet stamps because perfed top and bottom. With such a large margin on one side, they seemed more like coils whose other side had been trimmed. But how about stamps from the sheet margin, also trimmed on the other side?

none of the cut vertical lines are perfertly cut. Most certainly scissor cuts

Something similar perhaps on these two perf 12 Admirals - looks like a couple 3c brown (Sc 108) got scissor trimmed on the bottom to look like coils?
