EXTREMELY FINE GEM. THE 1868 5-CENT F GRILL IS ONE OF THE MOST DIFFICULT ISSUES TO FIND WITH WIDE MARGINS ON ALL SIDES.
The narrow space between stamps and large 12-gauge perforations left little opportunity to clear the design. This stamp is an extraordinary exception to the rule.
With 1998 P.F. and 2009 P.S.E. certificates (XF 90; SMQ $2,250.00). Only two have graded higher to date (both at 95).
