1870-88 Bank Note Issues
Lot Sym. Lot Description  
67 og Image90c Carmine, Grill (144). H. Grill, original gum, lightly hinged, clearly-defined grill points easily visible just below Commodore Perry's chin, intense shade and impression

VERY FINE. AN EXCEEDINGLY RARE ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 1870 90-CENT GRILLED NATIONAL BANK NOTE ISSUE. THE 90-CENT IS THE THIRD MOST DIFFICULT OF THE NATIONAL BANK NOTE GRILLED ISSUES TO OBTAIN IN ORIGINAL-GUM CONDITION.

Considering original-gum examples only, after the extremely rare 12c and 30c and non-existent 24c, the 90c is the rarest of the 1870 National Grilled Issue.
