VERY FINE AND CHOICE. A RARE ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 1868 15-CENT E GRILL.

As an indication of the rarity of 15c E Grill stamps with original gum, the Scott Catalogue values Scott 91 at $4,500.00 without gum, and $12,000.00 with original gum. This stamp, with its unusually balanced margins, full original gum, clear grill and overall freshness, is truly a remarkable rarity.

VERY FINE AND CHOICE ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 1868 5-CENT F GRILL.

The spacing on the 5c plate was quite narrow. The outer portions of the design are often touched in one or more places. Thus, centered copies are scarce, and in original-gum condition they are rare.
