VERY FINE AND CHOICE. A BEAUTIFUL EXAMPLE OF THE 1870 24-CENT NATIONAL BANK NOTE COMPANY GRILLED ISSUE. ESPECIALLY DESIRABLE WITH THE RED NEW YORK FOREIGN MAIL CANCEL.
Scott 142 is not known in unused condition. Therefore, anyone wishing to complete this set must obtain this stamp in used condition. The example offered here, with brilliant color, a red cancel and noticeable grill points, is one of the most desirable we have ever encountered.
Ex "Scarsdale". With 1997 P.F. certificate
