Sale 1062, Lot 357, 1870-71 National Bank Note Co. Grilled Issue (Scott 134-144)24c Purple, H. Grill (142). Easily discernible grill points, bold strike of blue cork cancel, bright shade, choice centering for this difficult issue

VERY FINE. A GORGEOUS USED EXAMPLE OF THE 1870 24-CENT NATIONAL BANK NOTE COMPANY GRILLED ISSUE. ESPECIALLY RARE WITH A PROMINENT BLUE CANCEL.

A Power Search review reveals how rare the 24c Grilled Issue is with a blue cancel. We have offered only two other examples since 1993 and in all our Rarities sales since 1964.

Ex Senchuk. With 1999 P.F. and 2009 P.S.E. certificates (F-VF 75; SMQ $5,050.00 for normal cancel). In our opinion this stamp is undergraded
