Sale Number 1234, Lot Number 122, 1867-68 Grilled Issue and 1875 Re-Issue of 1861-66 Issue (Scott 81-111)2c Black, F. Grill (93), 2c Black, F. Grill (93)2c Black, F. Grill (93). Complete left pane of 100, imprint selvage at top and left, imprint and plate no. 30 at bottom, original gum with many Mint N.H., some disturbed and a few outer stamps short gum, mix of centering as expected, but with many well-centered stamps, the gutter margin at right impinges slightly into the lower three stamps, creases affect three horizontal rows, some hinge-reinforced separations and crimped perfs along center, couple tiny nicks in lower right margin, these flaws are insignificant in a pane of this vintage and rarity

FINE-VERY FINE. THIS IS THE UNIQUE PANE OF THE 1868 2-CENT BLACK JACK F GRILL AND THE ONLY KNOWN COMPLETE PANE OR SHEET OF ANY BLACK JACK STAMP.

The 2c stamp of 1863-68 depicting President Andrew Jackson has long been a favorite of stamp collectors and has been the inspiration for a number of famous named collections and exhibits, including those of Allen, Rorke, Metzger, Burrows, Fosdyke-Ray and Faust. The Jackson portrait, based on an 1842 painting by John Wood Dodge, takes up nearly the entire design, making the 2c Black Jack one of the most striking 19th century stamps.

A complete pane or sheet of any classic stamp is the ultimate display piece for a specialized collection. This 2c F Grill pane is the only one in existence and is, in fact, the only full pane of any Black Jack issued (Scott 73, 84, 85B, 87, 93 or 103).

From our 1984 Rarities sale and ex Metzger and Fosdyke-Ray. Scott lists but does not price a plate block of this issue. Scott value as a plate number strip of four and 96 hinged singles is $49,700.00
