EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A BEAUTIFUL USED EXAMPLE OF THE 2-CENT 1870 NATIONAL BANK NOTE COMPANY I GRILL, GRADED SUPERB 98 BY P.S.E.
Ex Kirke. With 2010 P.F. not identifying grill type and 2009 P.S.E. certificates (Superb 98; SMQ $2,500.00). Only one grades higher (at 98J) and one other shares this desirable grade.
EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB USED EXAMPLE OF THE 1870 NATIONAL BANK NOTE COMPANY ISSUE WITH AN I GRILL, WHICH HAS BEEN GRADED SUPERB 98 BY P.S.E.
With 1998 P.F. and 2007 P.S.E. certificates (Superb 98; unpriced in SMQ above the grade of 90, SMQ $525.00 as a 90). The I Grill did not get its separate catalogue listing until a few years ago, we are aware of one other graded 98, which is the highest grade awarded
EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB EXAMPLE OF THE 2-CENT 1870 NATIONAL BANK NOTE COMPANY I GRILL IN THE FINEST CONDITION ATTAINABLE. THIS HUGE STAMP HAS BEEN GRADED SUPERB 98 JUMBO BY P.S.E. -- THE HIGHEST GRADE AWARDED.
The I Grills have been elevated to major catalogue numbers starting with the 2013 Scott Specialized Catalogue.
With 1986 and 2004 P.F. certificates. With 2010 P.S.E. certificate (Superb 98 Jumbo; unpriced in SMQ above the grade of 98, SMQ $1,450.00 as 98 graded H Grill). This is the highest grade awarded and no other examples have achieved this grade, so there is no need to speculate how the P.S.E. graded population breaks down between grill types at this grade. However, the I Grill is scarcer than the H Grill, so we would expect the I Grill SMQ values to be separately reported and adjusted upward to reflect the new Scott listings. Scott Catalogue value is based on 2012 listing which does not distinguish between the grill types
