EXTREMELY FINE GEM EXAMPLE OF THE 3-CENT ROSE E GRILL. RARELY SEEN IN THIS CHOICE CONDITION.
The 3c E Grill should not be confused with the F Grill in terms of condition. It is far rarer in this original-gum condition and Extremely Fine Gem grade. The reason could be that multiples, from which such choice stamps can be harvested, have always been scarce, and single stamps saved by collectors in albums typically have disturbed gum from multiple hinges. Therefore, this lightly hinged 3c E Grill, with its intense shade and enormous margins, should be given special attention.
With 1999 P.F. certificate.
