A comment - Scott lists this Libya stamp (design types A124 and A135a, with minor differences) as a coil stamp (Sc. No 461-463, 496-498 and 575-577), although all four sides are perforated (14.5 x 14).

I guess I never realized that "coil" stamps, supposedly sold in a strip, do not always have two straight edges ...

Palestine Mandate also had coil stamps that were perforated on all sides.
Here are the catalog listed coils. They have different perforation configurations than the normal stamps.

It is rather the standard.

Gibraltar


Hong Kong


Netherlands


Spain and the UK have them perforated four sides as well.

I can not believe that nobody has pointed the finger at the United States.
In March of 2003 Ashton Potter printed the 5 cent Seacoast Coil, Scott 3785. By mistake, the printer not only printed the stamps on fully prephosphorized paper, but also fully die-cut!
Plate numbers P1111 and P2222.
The B111 numbered coils were from a different printer and not involved

Do fully perforated Ashton Potter coils for Éire come close enough?

Danzig coil variety (Michel #290D). Most of these 5 pf stamps were sheet stamps. These have syncopated horizontal perforations.
