EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB USED EXAMPLE OF THE 1868 24-CENT F GRILL GRADED XF-SUPERB 95 BY P.S.E. AN EXCEEDINGLY RARE STAMP IN SUCH CONDITION.

The higher-denomination F Grills were produced in limited quantities and are often found either off center or with choppy perforations. This stamp is a true condition rarity.

With 1997 P.F. and 2010 P.S.E. certificates (XF-Superb 95; SMQ $10,500.00). This is one of only four examples to achieve this desirable grade with none higher, a statistic that has not changed in at least four years
