Lot Sym. Lot Description  
251   Image5c Brown, F. Grill, Kiss Print (95 var). Deep rich color, showing an overall kiss print especially evident at top in lettering of "U.S. Postage", choice centering with well-balanced margins, unobtrusive strike of cork cancel leaves entire design clearly visible, Very Fine and choice, a rare variety on this issue and the only one we have encountered, the 5c F Grill is not known with a true double impression, the example offered here shows some doubling but one of the impressions lacks the clear lines of the engraving, which is a requirement of a true double impression, ex "Natalee Grace", with 1996, 2001 and 2012 P.F. certificates, the latter two confirming the kiss print.

257   Image90c Blue, F. Grill (101). Unusually choice centering with wide margins, deep rich color on bright paper, nicely complemented by red cancel

EXTREMELY FINE USED EXAMPLE OF THE 1868 90-CENT F GRILL WITH A RED CANCEL.

The 90c stamps used to make grilled issues were printed on a thick stock of paper. It is likely that sheets remaining from the pre-grill period were used and that the thinner paper introduced in 1868 had not been used for the 90c value. Two characteristics of 90c F Grill stamps are poorly punched perforations and generally poor centering.

Ex. Dr. Morris and Bowman. With 1985 and 1994 P.F. and 2015 P.S.E. certificates (XF 90; SMQ $4,850.00). In our opinion this stamp deserves a 95 grade based on eye appeal and margin width, but the slightly wider top margin and non-rectangular overall conformation kept the current graders at P.S.E. from reaching the same conclusion. Regardless of the numerical grade, this is one of the most beautiful 90c F Grill stamps in existence. (Image)
