EXTREMELY FINE GEM. ONE OF THE FINEST 1868 5-CENT F GRILL STAMPS EXTANT AND CERTAINLY THE BEST QUALITY EXAMPLE OF THE BLACK BROWN SHADE WE HAVE EVER ENCOUNTERED.

The 5c F Grill is known in Brown, Dark Brown and Black Brown. The first two are in the same color family (listed as Scott 95). The Black Brown is distinctly darker and is given its own sub-letter designation, Scott 95a. The Dark Brown is sometimes mistaken by collectors for the Black Brown shade, but a side-by-side comparison illustrates the significant difference between the two. On the Black Brown the engraved lines are especially clear, it has a proof-like appearance, and is significantly scarcer than the other shades.

With 1993 P.F. and 2016 P.S.E. certificates (XF-Superb 95; SMQ $10,000.00). This is the highest grade awarded and the only Black Brown stamp to receive this grade, with the next highest at XF 90 (ex Hansen and "Natalee Grace").

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB USED EXAMPLE OF THE 1868 5-CENT F GRILL IN THE BLACK BROWN COLOR. ONE OF THE FINEST EXAMPLES OF THIS RARE SHADE WE HAVE ENCOUNTERED AND CONFIRMED BY P.S.E. IN GRADING THIS STAMP XF-SUPERB 95, THE HIGHEST RECORDED.

The 5c F Grill is known in Brown, Dark Brown and Black Brown. The first two are in the same color family (listed as Scott 95).

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A STUNNING USED EXAMPLE OF THE 1868 5-CENT F GRILL IN THE BLACK BROWN COLOR. THIS IS EASILY THE FINEST OF THIS RARE SHADE WE HAVE EVER ENCOUNTERED.

The 5c F Grill is known in Brown, Dark Brown and Black Brown. The first two are in the same color family (listed as Scott 95). The Black Brown is distinctly darker and is given its own sub-letter designation, Scott 95a. The Dark Brown is sometimes mistaken by collectors for the Black Brown shade, but a side-by-side comparison illustrates the significant difference between the two. On the Black Brown the engraved lines are especially clear, it has a proof-like appearance, and is significantly scarcer than the other shades. The modest difference in catalogue value does not adequately convey its rarity.

Ex Hansen. 1980 P.F. certificate no longer accompanies. With 2009 P.S.E. certificate (XF 90; SMQ $2,900.00). This is the highest grade awarded to date and the only example to achieve this grade. Only three have been graded. A review using Power Search found we have offered only two others since 1994, both of which were faulty.
