50° og Image15c Black, E. Grill (91). Original gum, clearly defined grill, beautiful shade and impression, choice centering with enormous margins

EXTREMELY FINE. THE 1868 15-CENT E GRILL IS ONE OF THE RAREST OF THE GRILLED ISSUES WITH ORIGINAL GUM AND WITH SUCH WIDE MARGINS.

As an indication of the rarity of 15c E Grill stamps with original gum, the Scott Catalogue values original-gum condition at more than twice the value of unused without gum. This stamp, with its unusually wide margins, full original gum, and overall freshness, is truly a remarkable rarity.

51° nh Image5c Brown, F. Grill (95). Mint N.H., deep rich color and proof-like impression, clearly-defined grill, unusually choice centering for this difficult issue

EXTREMELY FINE. A BEAUTIFUL AND RARE SOUND AND CENTERED MINT NEVER-HINGED EXAMPLE OF THE 1867 5-CENT F GRILL. THIS IS WITHOUT QUESTION ONE OF THE FINEST IN EXISTENCE.

The 5c F Grill is rare but does exist in Mint N.H. condition. These have primarily been harvested from blocks broken in the last decade. We have offered five others since keeping computerized records. However, none has been truly well-centered. The margins are generally narrow, and the perforations often touch the design. The stamp offered here has every characteristic one could hope for -- Mint N.H. gum, a clear grill, wide and balanced margins which are well clear of the perforations and long and full perforations all around.

With 1988 and 2006 P.F. certificates (XF 90). Scott Retail as hinged (Image)

52° og Image24c Gray Lilac, F. Grill (99). Original gum, lightly hinged, radiant color on bright paper, clearly-defined grill which is also present on selvage at right, unusually choice centering for this difficult issue

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 1867 24-CENT F GRILL, WHICH HAS BEEN GRADED XF-SUPERB 95 BY P.S.E. ARGUABLY THE FINEST SINGLE ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THIS STAMP EXTANT.

The higher-denomination F Grills were produced in limited quantities and seem to have caused National Bank Note Co. difficulty in applying perforations. They are typically off center with very choppy perfs This stamp has uncharacteristically precise centering and well-formed perforations. The attached sheet selvage also shows an impression of the grill, which appears only in the side selvage on Z and F Grills. Conversely, the extra grill impression appears in the top and bottom selvage of D and E Grills, which indicates a difference in how the D/E and F/Z Grills were applied.

With 1991 P.F. and 2006 P.S.E. certificates (OGh, XF-Superb 95, SMQ $39,000.00). This is the highest grade awarded to date and the only example to achieve this grade. (Image)
