1867-68 Grilled Issue
Lot Sym. Lot Description
96 og image3c Rose, A. Grill (79). Original gum, intense shade and impression, lighter than usual grill impression which leaves perforations on all sides completely intact, faint horizontal crease

FINE APPEARANCE. A SCARCE ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 1867 3-CENT A GRILL. ESPECIALLY DESIRABLE WITH THE PERFORATIONS INTACT.

Due to the nature of the grilling machine and the all-over grill, most examples of this issue have perfs missing. The example offered here, with intact perfs all around, is a condition rarity.

98 og image2c Black, D. Grill (84). Original gum, lightly hinged, unusually well-defined grill, intense shade and proof-like impression on post-office fresh paper

FINE. AN EXCEEDINGLY RARE ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 1868 2-CENT D GRILL. PARTICULARLY SCARCE WITH SUCH A HIGH DEGREE OF FRESHNESS.

A thorough search of past auction catalogues reveals that the 2c D Grill in original-gum condition is conspicuously absent from most important collections. The finest examples are contained in the intact block of four, ex Caspary, Lilly and Klein. The stamp offered here, with full original gum, unusually clear grill, proof-like impression and fresh paper, is a rarity of the highest order.

101 og image3c Rose, Z. Grill (85C). Large part original gum, clearly-defined grill, bright color, vertical production paperfold in left margin (before perforating) has been opened up

EXTREMELY FINE APPEARANCE. A SCARCE ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 1868 3-CENT Z GRILL. THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST DIFFICULT OF THE REGULAR GRILLED ISSUES TO OBTAIN IN SUCH CHOICE CONDITION.

Excluding the supremely rare grills -- 5c and 30c A Grill, 3c B Grill, 1c, 10c and 15c Z Grills -- the 3c Z Grill is the rarest of the regularly-produced grilled issues. Examples of the 3c Z Grill are usually far off-center and faulty. The centering on this stamp is truly remarkable.

With 1956 P.F. certificate which does not mention the natural paperfold (Image)

25,000.00

SOLD for $8,000.00
Will close during Public Auction
102 og image12c Black, Z. Grill (85E). Original gum, clearly-defined grill, intense shade and proof-like impression, light diagonal crease and short perfs at left not mentioned on accompanying certificate

FINE APPEARANCE. A RARE ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 1868 12-CENT Z GRILL.

Unlike the 2c Z Grill, no well-centered blocks of the 3c or 12c have been available to furnish singles. We have offered perhaps five or six examples with original gum in the past thirteen years.
