Sale Number 1062, Lot Number 358, 1870-71 National Bank Note Co. Grilled Issue (Scott 134-144)30c Black, H. Grill (143), 30c Black, H. Grill (143)30c Black, H. Grill (143). Intense shade and impression, several visible grill points (accompanying P.S.E. certificate states "weakly impressed grill", but this is normal for this issue), far better centering than normally seen with balanced margins, neat centrally-struck three-ring cancel

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. AN OUTSTANDING USED EXAMPLE OF THE 1870 30-CENT NATIONAL BANK NOTE COMPANY GRILLED ISSUE. THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST DIFFICULT DENOMINATIONS TO OBTAIN IN SOUND AND CENTERED CONDITION.

The 30c National Bank Note Co. Grilled Issue is normally seen with small margins, or is off-center. If one finds a centered copy, it more often than not turns out to have a small flaw. The stamp offered here is truly the exception to the rule.

With 1983 P.F. and 2009 P.S.E. certificates (XF 90; SMQ $7,500.00). This is the highest grade awarded and only one other shares it -- offered in our sale of the Merlin collection in 2012. The stamp offered here has the more attractive cancel of the two graded 90
