Essays for Re-Use Prevention: Z Grills
Lot Sym. Lot Description  
249 E Image3c Z. Grill, Thorp Patent Experimental Trial Color Essays on Tinted Papers (85C-E2 var). Seven, in a range of shades and papers identified on exhibit page, printed from sheets of 12, distinctive grills, a few minor flaws including one with short perfs at top, overall Fine-Very Fine, for some reason the Scott Catalogue lists the 12c Z Grill essays (as 85-E1) and the Z Grills on selvage from the 12c and 3c essays (as 85-E2) but does not list the 3c Z Grill essays (they are only referred to in a footnote), we hear they will soon be added back to the catalogue, Scott Retail as the similar but more plentiful 12 Z Grill essays (Image)
