142   Image24c Purple, H. Grill (142). Noticeable grill points at left, the distinctive light shade but the color is fresh and nicely complemented by red New York Foreign Mail cancel, choice centering for this difficult issue

VERY FINE AND CHOICE. A BEAUTIFUL EXAMPLE OF THE 1870 24-CENT NATIONAL BANK NOTE COMPANY GRILLED ISSUE. ESPECIALLY DESIRABLE WITH THE RED NEW YORK FOREIGN MAIL CANCEL.

Scott 142 is not known in unused condition. Therefore, anyone wishing to complete this set must obtain this stamp in used condition. The example offered here, with brilliant color, a red cancel and noticeable grill points, is one of the most desirable we have ever encountered.

143 og Image90c Carmine, H. Grill (144). Original gum, intense shade and impression, clearly defined grill, faint horizontal crease at top -- invisible on the face of the stamp, reperfed at left

VERY FINE APPEARANCE AND AN EXCEEDINGLY RARE ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 90-CENT 1870 NATIONAL BANK NOTE CO. GRILLED ISSUE.

Considering original-gum examples only, after the extremely rare 12c and 30c and non-existent 24c, the 90c is the rarest of the 1870 National Grilled Issue.

144   Image90c Carmine, H. Grill (144). Bright color, clear grill points, unusually wide and balanced margins, bold strike of segmented cork cancel

EXTREMELY FINE. A WONDERFUL USED EXAMPLE OF THE 1870 90-CENT NATIONAL BANK NOTE COMPANY GRILLED ISSUE. DIFFICULT TO OBTAIN IN SUCH CHOICE CONDITION.

For some reason, most examples of this issue with wide margins tend to have small flaws. We have encountered perhaps a dozen copies which are sound and also have wide margins.

145 bl Image90c Carmine, H. Grill (144). Block of four, deep rich color, bottom left stamp shows clear grill points, bold circle of wedges cancels, small crease at bottom right

VERY FINE. AN EXCEEDINGLY RARE USED BLOCK OF THE 1870 90-CENT NATIONAL GRILLED ISSUE.

There are probably no more than four used blocks of the 90c 1870 Grill (including one block of seven), and, to the best of our knowledge, this is the best-centered block and also the only used multiple that is essentially sound.

Ex Twigg-Smith. With 1987 P.F. certificate noting that grill shows only on lower left stamp. Scott value $13,500.00. (Image)

146 ogbl Image30c Black (154). Block of six with left selvage, original gum, top left and top right stamps h.r., dark charcoal shade and crisp impression on fresh paper, top right stamp faint corner crease and pulled perf

FINE AND EXTREMELY RARE SHEET-MARGIN BLOCK OF THE 30-CENT UNGRILLED 1870 NATIONAL BANK NOTE ISSUE. THIS IS IN ALL LIKELIHOOD THE LARGEST KNOWN MULTIPLE.

A review of auction records produced four blocks of six with identical centering, offered variously as Scott 154 or 165. While this was once offered as Scott 165, we are confident that our identification of this as the 1870 National Issue is correct. Linn's U.S. Stamp Facts lists a block of four as the largest known block of Scott 154.

147   Image3c Green, Double Impression (158j). Rich color, light strike of cork cancel and part of circular datestamp leaves double impression clearly visible, short perf at bottom right

FINE APPEARANCE. A RARE EXAMPLE OF THE 1873 3-CENT CONTINENTAL BANK NOTE ISSUE WITH DOUBLE IMPRESSION. ONLY SEVEN ARE RECORDED IN OUR CENSUS.

Most double impressions occur when the first impression is made and found to be inadequate. The paper is then put in the press a second time, when it receives the heavier impression. It is a common misconception that the weaker impression is the second one.

Our census of Scott 158j, available at https://siegelauctions.com/census/us/scott/158j , records only seven examples of this rarity. Of the seven, one has a previous certificate as genuine and another as a kiss print (both as sound), but we consider it to be genuine because the P.F. has clarified their standards since that most recent certificate was issued.

VERY FINE AND RARE MINT NEVER-HINGED EXAMPLE OF THE 1873 10-CENT CONTINENTAL BANK NOTE ISSUE.

We have offered only approximately half a dozen single Scott 161 stamps in Mint N.H. condition since keeping computerized records (plus a block of four).

FRESH AND EXTREMELY FINE EXAMPLE OF THE 1875 7-CENT CONTINENTAL BANK NOTE COMPANY SPECIAL PRINTING.

Our census of Scott 171 contains 71 certified examples plus one uncertified copy. Most stamps were scissors-separated, affecting the perforations on at least one side. This is one of the finest we record.

VERY FINE EXAMPLE OF THE 24-CENT 1875 CONTINENTAL BANK NOTE COMPANY SPECIAL PRINTING, WITH PERFORATIONS ON ALL FOUR SIDES.

Our census of Scott 175 contains approximately 100 examples. Many are scissors-separated with large portions of perfs missing from one or more sides.
