The Richard Drews Collection of U.S. 1861-1868 Issues continued...

1867-68 Grilled Issue: E Grill continued...
Lot Sym. Lot Description  
373 ogbl Image10c Green, E. Grill (89). Block of four, original gum, clearly-defined grills, deep rich color on bright paper, bottom stamps with light horizontal creases

VERY FINE. A BEAUTIFUL ORIGINAL-GUM BLOCK OF FOUR OF THE 1868 10-CENT E GRILL. THIS IS THE FIRST UNUSED BLOCK WE HAVE OFFERED IN OUR AUCTIONS IN 20 YEARS. A PHENOMENAL RARITY.

The 1956 Caspary sale contained a block of eighteen which was subsequently broken into smaller units, including singles. We last offered a block of four in 1998. The block offered here, with the top two stamps in sound and centered condition, may not remain intact much longer.

With 2002 P.F. certificate (Image)
