Block of four, original gum, h.r., brilliant color, strong grills with few points breaking paper as often, top stamps light horizontal crease at bottom

FINE-VERY FINE APPEARANCE. AN EXTREMELY RARE ORIGINAL-GUM BLOCK OF FOUR OF THE 1875 2-CENT CONTINENTAL BANK NOTE COMPANY ISSUE WITH GRILL.

It is believed that the Continental grills were made experimentally in 1876, after a stamp-cleaning court trial renewed fears of stamp re-use. The primary source of the rare J Grills was the Worthington collection, which was dispersed in 1917. It is believed that most or all examples in collectors' hands came from the archive of Charles F. Steel, who patented the grilling machines used between 1867 and 1873.

This is the first block we have offered since keeping computerized records. Scott Retail as singles.
