VERY FINE AND CHOICE. A RARE UNUSED EXAMPLE OF THE 1868 2-CENT D GRILL. A REMARKABLY FRESH STAMP IN TERMS OF IMPRESSION, PAPER, STRENGTH OF GRILL AND OVERALL APPEARANCE.

The 2c D Grill is one of the rarest of the regular-production 1868 Grilled Issues. It is usually seen with narrow margins and poor centering. The stamp offered here, with unusually wide margins, should be considered a great rarity.

With 1983 P.F. certificate.
