1798 og Image90c Carmine (155). Original gum, near perfect centering with balanced margins, bright color on fresh paper

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 1870 90-CENT UNGRILLED NATIONAL BANK NOTE ISSUE, GRADED XF-SUPERB 95. THIS IS THE HIGHEST GRADE AWARDED.

In general, the Grilled National Bank Note Issues in superb original-gum condition overshadow their ungrilled counterparts. This is also true for the 90c. However, in the case of the 90c, collectors are frequently misled by the availability of Scott 166, the 1873 Continental printing. The difference in shades is distinct, yet collectors have a tendency to under-rate the 1870 National printing. Most original-gum examples are poorly centered. This example is remarkable for its centering and freshness of color.

With 2005 P.S.E. certificate (OG, XF-Superb 95; SMQ $18,500.00). Only two other stamps share this grade, with none higher (Image)
