Sale Number 1032, Lot Number 3225, 1870-71 National Bank Note Co. Issue, H and I Grills (Scott 134-144, 135A-141A)30c Black, H. Grill (143), 30c Black, H. Grill (143)30c Black, H. Grill (143). Several easily visible rows of grill points, crisp impression, segmented cork cancel

VERY FINE AND CHOICE USED EXAMPLE OF THE 1870 30-CENT NATIONAL H GRILL.

The 30c National Bank Note Company Grilled Issue is normally seen with small margins, or is off-center, and often has an indistinct cork cancel. If one sees a centered copy, it more often than not turns out to have a small flaw. The stamp offered here, with nice centering and an attractive defined cancel, is an exception to the rule.

With 1987 P.F. and 2011 P.S.E. certificates (F-VF 75; SMQ $2,300.00)
