1867 A. Grill
LotNo. Symbol CatNo. Lot Description
62 og 80E image1867 5c brown, A.Grill Essay (covering the entire stamp), original gum, pulled perforation at lower right, fine appearance, with 1969 (as Scott No.80 unused with original gum) and 2019 Philatelic Foundation Certificates, ex-Meilstrup (1973 sale, sold as a stamp). There are four known unused "essays", all originating from a block of four from the Earl of Crawford's collection (presumably this is the lower right stamp). There are also only four known used examples, which are listed in the Scott catalogue as number 80 (with a catalogue value of $260,000, likely to rise after a recent hammer of $340,000). One of only four unused copies, this is quite possibly the finest, as it has original gum and only a minor flaw. An unused without gum copy with small faults brought $22,000 in the 2015 Siegel Rarities Sale (two of the four unused 5c A Grill stamps from the Earl of Crawford block, including this one, were previously certified as genuine Scott 80's by The Philatelic Foundation, which currently describes them as essays) (Cat No. 80E) (Image) (image 62a)

63 O 81 image1867 30c orange, A.Grill (covering the entire stamp), black Crossroads cancel, usual centering, tear at upper left, ex- Meilstrup (where it was described as having a "few irregular perfs"), handstamped on back (W.H.C.), fine appearance, with 1968 ("the stamp and the grill are genuine") and 2019 Philatelic Foundation Certificates, ex-Ezra Cole. There are only 8 known copies of this stamp (including one in the New York Public Library Collection), all used, poorly centered, and most contain some degree of faults. The stamp offered in this auction is listed in the Siegel Census as 81-CAN-03 and has not been seen since 1969. A comparable copy (also with a tear) realized $150,000 in the Wingate sale (Siegel Auctions, 2018) (Scott catalogue value "for off-center examples with small perforation faults") cat. $240000 (Cat No. 81) (Image) (image 63a)

1867 B. Grill
LotNo. Symbol CatNo. Lot Description
64 O 82 image1867 3c rose, B. Grill, black grid cancel, accompanied by the original cover from Mason, Texas to Darmstadt, Germany (10c paid the rate to Hamburg, with additional 2c needed to pay for the transmission from Hamburg to Darmstadt), which contained a row of four of the 3c "B" Grill singles (the only four known copies). The cover is illustrated and extensively described in the 1966 "The United States Postage Stamps of the 19th Century" by Lester Brookman. The example offered here is centered to upper left (as all four copies are), has a natural straight edge at right, light diagonal crease, fine, with a photograph of the 1969 PFC for the original cover showing the four stamps (removed and hinged back) and 2019 PFC for this single copy. The emergence of this particular stamp along with the actual cover from which it originated is a major philatelic revelation, as both have not been seen in over 50 years. Recent realizations of singles include $575,000 (plus buyer's premium) in a 2015 Siegel Rarities sale and $900,000 (plus buyer's premium) in the Perry Hansen sale (Siegel Auctions, 2008) on which the current Scott catalogue value is based. This 3 Cent B Grill is one of the four discovered together on a cover to Germany. It is one of the rarest stamps in the world and a key to a complete collection of the United States stamps, cat. $900000 (Cat No. 82) (Image) (image 64a) (image 64b)

1867 Z. Grill - 10c green The Finest Known Example
LotNo. Symbol CatNo. Lot Description
70 O 85D image1867 10c green, Z.Grill, segmented cork cancel, well centered on crisp white paper, completely sound, ex-Laurence and Stryker, with 1958 and 2019 Philatelic Foundation certificates (the latter graded "VF-XF 85"). There are only six known copies of this stamp, one of which is in the Miller Collection. Only one other (ex-Ishikawa) is sound and this is by far the better centered of the two. A major philatelic rarity, one of only five existing examples available to collectors, this one not seen since 1958 (Siegel Census 85D-CAN-01), worthy of the finest collection (SMQ for FN-70 $520,000) (Scott catalogue value is for a well centered copy with faults) cat. $600000 (Cat No. 85D) (Image) (image 70a)

1867 Z. Grill - 15c black One of Two Known
LotNo. Symbol CatNo. Lot Description
72 O 85F image1867 15c black, Z.Grill, geometric cancel, centered to right, completely sound, one of only two known copies, with 1962 and 2019 Philatelic Foundation Certificates, ex-Eugene Costales. A tremendous United States and World Class rarity, ex-Schilling Collection, last offered in a 1975 Siegel Rarities sale (catalogued in the grade of extremely fine at $2,000,000 and $800,000 as VG-50 in the U.S. Specialized by Grade). This stamp is definitely a key to forming a complete U.S. stamp collection, equal in rarity to the famous Z.Grill 1c (In Scott catalogue of U. S. Stamps, the 15c Z.Grill is listed as 85F: it is one of the very few issues that does not bear a unique number but must share its numeral (85) with other stamps of different denominations. This anomaly arose because Scott created its system long before the Z pattern gained general recognition as a separate variety of Grill (which did not occur until the 1910s). Accordingly, Scott assigned capital letters to the Z.Grill denominations and inserted them into the catalogue after No.85 (the 3c D.Grill). The 1c Z.Grill appeared as 85A and the 2c through 15c Z.Grills were designated 85B through 85F. This expedient enabled Scott to retain the existing numbers for all subsequent stamps, beginning with the E.Grill issues (86-91) (Cat No. 85F) (Image) (image 72a)
