HISTORY AND COMMENTARY

Blocks of the 12¢ E Grill are much rarer than multiples of the 10¢ or 15¢ E Grill, or the F Grills up through the 15¢. Not one block of the 12¢ E Grill was included in the massive classic collections formed by Caspary, Crocker, Eno, Lilly, Moody, West or Ishikawa. The Green collection had two off-center blocks, and the Klein collection had one off-center block (all with original gum).

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB USED EXAMPLE OF THE 1868 12-CENT E GRILL, GRADED XF-SUPERB 95 JUMBO BY P.S.E. -- THIS IS THE HIGHEST GRADED SCOTT 90 WITH A COLORED CANCEL. ONLY ONE STAMP HAS GRADED HIGHER.

With 1996, 2002 P.F. and 2006 P.S.E. certificates (XF-Superb 95 Jumbo; SMQ $5,750.00). This is the only Scott 90 graded XF-Superb 95 Jumbo by P.S.E. Only one has graded higher -- the Superb 98 stamp offered in our 2016 sale of the "Hanover" collection. That stamp has a black cancel. Power Search does not list another stamp cancelled in red in our auctions in any P.S.E. grade (we have sold one stamp graded VF-XF 85 by the P.F. with a red cancel).
