EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A STUNNING USED EXAMPLE OF THE 1868 2-CENT F GRILL WITH A PERFECT STRIKE OF A COLORED CANCEL. THIS STAMP HAS THE GREATEST EYE APPEAL OF ANY EXAMPLE OF THIS ISSUE WE HAVE EVER ENCOUNTERED. A TRULY SPECIAL STAMP.

Ex Ishikawa and Twigg-Smith. With 1988 P.F. and 2009 P.S.E. certificates (XF-Superb 95; SMQ $1,000.00). Only three have graded higher to date. In our opinion SMQ does not adequately account for the very desirable cancel on this stamp.
