VERY GOOD. A RARE AND PRESENTABLE ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 1868 2-CENT D GRILL.

As a thorough search of past auction catalogues shows, the 2c D Grill in original-gum condition is conspicuously absent from most important collections. The finest examples are contained in the intact block of four, ex Caspary, Lilly and Klein. We have offered perhaps four or five sound copies with centering we would consider Very Fine. The example offered here, with selvage containing an additional imprint of the grill, is highly desirable.

Ex Hoffman. With 1993 and 2000 P.F. certificates

FINE APPEARANCE. AN EXTREMELY RARE AND DESIRABLE ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 1868 2-CENT D GRILL. THIS IS A RARE STAMP WITH ORIGINAL GUM AND IS EVEN MORE DESIRABLE SHOWING A SPLIT GRILL. THIS IS THE ONLY UNUSED EXAMPLE WITH SPLIT GRILL WE HAVE OFFERED IN AT LEAST 25 YEARS.

Our computerized records go back to 1994, plus our Rarities sales and select name sales back to 1966. During that time, we have offered only two used example of Scott 84 with split grill, plus a pair on cover in our recent auction of the Faust collection. The Metzger collection did not have any, and the Rorke collection had one used with perfs significantly in on two sides.

A Power Search review will also demonstrate how rare this is as an original-gum stamp, regardless of the variety. The example offered here, with full original gum, the sheet selvage, the split grill and a small fault, is very desirable.

With 1999 P.F. certificate

VERY FINE APPEARANCE. A SCARCE ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 1868 2-CENT D GRILL. THIS IS AN EXTREMELY DIFFICULT ISSUE TO OBTAIN WITH ORIGINAL GUM AND ANY SEMBLANCE OF DECENT CENTERING.

A Power Search review (sort Scott 84 results by prices realized to see the nicest copies) demonstrates how difficult this is to find with original gum and decent centering. The finest examples are contained in the intact block of four, ex Caspary, Lilly, Klein and Faust. This stamp will look far better on an album page than most.

VERY GOOD. A RARE SOUND, ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 1868 2-CENT D GRILL.

The 2c D Grill in original-gum condition is very difficult to find in sound condition. It is essentially non-existent in centered and sound condition, so collectors who demand stamps without faults must compromise on centering.

Original gum, right sheet margin with part of "NATIONAL BANK N(OTE CO.)" imprint, intense shade and impression, full clear grill impression showing the requisite 15 columns of points

FINE CENTERING WITH WIDE MARGINS ON THREE SIDES BALANCED BY SHEET MARGIN AT RIGHT. ONLY ONE OTHER IMPRINT STAMP WITH ORIGINAL GUM IS RECORDED. APART FROM THE A AND Z GRILL RARITIES, THE 2-CENT 1868 D GRILL IS THE RAREST OF ALL GRILLED ISSUES.

As a thorough search of past auction catalogues shows, the 2c D Grill in original gum condition is conspicuously absent from most important collections. The finest examples are contained in the intact block of four, ex Caspary, Lilly and Klein. The stamp offered here, with full original gum and part imprint, is a rarity of the highest order.

Ex Crocker, Hetherington, Eno and Sheriff as part of a block and ex Golin as a single; the adjoining block below (with second half of imprint) was part of the Close collection. With copy of 1954 P.F. certificate as block and 1992 P.F. certificate as single. Scott Retail for Fine centering

FRESH AND FINE. AN EXCEEDINGLY RARE SOUND ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 1868 2-CENT D GRILL. THIS ISSUE IS NOTORIOUSLY DIFFICULT TO FIND IN SUCH FRESH CONDITION.

A thorough search of past auction catalogues reveals that the 2c D Grill in original-gum condition is conspicuously absent from most important collections. The finest examples are contained in the intact block of four, ex Caspary, Lilly and Klein. Most original-gum examples tend to be either faulty or strongly off-center in two directions, with perforations well into the design. The stamp offered here is the exception, and should be considered a condition rarity.

Ex Hetherington in a block of four. With 1954 and 2006 P.F. certificates, the former as a block.
