EXTREMELY FINE GEM. THE 1868 ONE-CENT E GRILL IS ONE OF THE MOST DIFFICULT STAMPS OF THE SERIES TO OBTAIN WITH SUCH CHOICE CENTERING AND IN SUCH PRISTINE CONDITION. THIS IS EASILY ONE OF THE FINEST IN EXISTENCE -- THE P.S.E. AGREES AND HAS AWARDED THIS STAMP THE GRADE OF SUPERB 98. THIS IS THE HIGHEST GRADE AWARDED TO DATE, AND THIS STAMP IS THE ONLY ONE TO ACHIEVE IT.

We have encountered only two others which compare favorably to the example offered here. They are: 1) blue circle of wedges cancel, ex Puliafito, Siegel Sale 818, lot 75, realized $5,750 hammer in 1999, and 2) blue grid cancel, ex Scarsdale, Siegel Sale 943, lot 2050, realized $7,500 hammer. P.S.E. has also graded two stamps Superb 95 Jumbo.

UNDOUBTEDLY THE FINEST USED BLOCK OF THE15c Black, F. Grill (98). Block of four, intact perfs at top with large part of adjoining pair, neat segmented cork cancels, sharp impression on bright paper, unusually choice centering

EXTREMELY FINE. UNDOUBTEDLY THE FINEST USED BLOCK OF THE 1868 15-CENT LINCOLN WITH F GRILL.

As an indication of rarity, the Twigg-Smith collection of used blocks lacked a block of Scott 98. Considering the centering of this block and the fact it is sound, we have no hesitation describing this as the finest used block extant.

With 2002 P.F. certificate. In our opinion, Scott Catalogue value does not adequately reflect the rarity of this block. (Image)
