406 ogbl Image90c Blue, F. Grill (101). Block of four, original gum, few h.r., centered slightly to bottom as are all known multiples, deep rich color, bright and fresh

FINE-VERY FINE. ONE OF THE RAREST AND MOST OUTSTANDING CLASSIC BLOCKS -- NO MORE THAN THREE UNUSED 1868 90-CENT F GRILL BLOCKS ARE BELIEVED TO EXIST. THIS IS THE FIRST WE HAVE OFFERED SINCE OUR 1998 ZOELLNER SALE.

Brookman estimated that only three unused blocks may exist. We have been able to locate only two, both with similar centering. One is ex Caspary, Lilly and Ishikawa, and has some disturbed gum on the right stamps and a crease on the bottom pair. The other is the block offered here, which is ex Sinkler, Bechtel and Zoellner. This block is also possibly ex Worthington or Hind; both collections contained a 90c F Grill block, but the sale catalogues were restricted from having photographs of stamps, which accounts for the confusion as to the number known.

Ex Sinkler, Bechtel and Zoellner (where acquired by Mr. Drews for approximately half its then-current 1998 Scott Catalogue value). With 1998 P.F. certificate. (Image)
