Full perforations with sheet margin on three sides, natural s.e. at right, original gum, h.r., clearly-defined 14 x 16 points E Grill, bright color, few minor perf separations, tiny corner crease in selvage at top left

VERY FINE. TO THE BEST OF OUR KNOWLEDGE, ONLY ONE OTHER EXAMPLE OF THIS RARE AND BEAUTIFUL E GRILL ESSAY EXISTS.

The other example of this essay has the same full perforations on three sides and has a straight edge at left (ex Thomas Morris Sr., Finkelburg, Geisler and "Lake Shore"). Therefore, it is likely that this was printed from a plate of two designs, which were then scissors-separated.
