VERY FINE. A RARE PLATE NUMBER SINGLE OF THE 1870 90-CENT UNGRILLED NATIONAL BANK NOTE ISSUE.

This Bank Note Issue is one of the scarcest with a plate number. Power Search contains only one other example with a plate number (single, block or strip), a top-margin single offered in our 1966 "Ambassador" sale. The Chapin census lists three strips, but at least one of them is Scott 166, not 155.

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 1870 90-CENT UNGRILLED NATIONAL BANK NOTE ISSUE, GRADED XF-SUPERB 95. THIS IS THE HIGHEST GRADE AWARDED.

In general, the Grilled National Bank Note Issues in superb original-gum condition overshadow their ungrilled counterparts. This is also true for the 90c. However, in the case of the 90c, collectors are frequently misled by the availability of Scott 166, the 1873 Continental printing. The difference in shades is distinct, yet collectors have a tendency to under-rate the 1870 National printing. Most original-gum examples are poorly centered. This example is remarkable for its centering and freshness of color.

With 2005 P.S.E. certificate (OG, XF-Superb 95; SMQ $18,500.00). Only two other stamps share this grade, with none higher

VERY FINE AND CHOICE ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 90-CENT NATIONAL BANK NOTE ISSUE. SCARCE WITH SUCH WIDE MARGINS AND IN SOUND CONDITION.

The 1870 90c National Ungrilled Issue, Scott 155, is somewhat overshadowed by its grilled counterpart, Scott 144. Collectors are also misled by the availability of Scott 166, the 90c 1873 Continental. Although the difference in shades is distinct, collectors have a tendency to confuse the two and under-rate the 1870 National printing.

Ex "Vineyard". With 1995, 2004 and 2011 P.F. certificates
