EXTREMELY FINE GEM. THE 1868 24-CENT F GRILL IS RARELY OBTAINABLE IN THIS OUTSTANDING USED CONDITION. THIS STAMP HAS BEEN GRADED XF-SUPERB 95 BY P.S.E., WHICH IS THE HIGHEST GRADE AWARDED. A SUPERB STAMP IN EVERY RESPECT.
The higher-denomination F Grills were produced in limited quantities and are often found either off center or with choppy perforations. The example offered here, with long perforations, superior centering, a clear grill and with a neat cancel, is a true condition rarity.
Ex Dr. Morris. With 1986 and 1994 P.F. and 2009 P.S.E. certificates (XF-Superb 95; SMQ $10,500.00). This is the highest grade awarded and only three others share it.
