As scarce as the 2c 1873 Continental stamp (Scott 157) is in Mint N.H. condition, the 2c 1870 National (Scott 146) is rarely obtainable in this state. The stamp offered here is easily one of the finest -- if not the finest -- we have encountered. Collectors on a quest to acquire the Bank Note issues in Extremely Fine Mint N.H. condition will be hard-pressed to locate a stamp of comparable quality.

EXTREMELY FINE GEM ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 1870 90-CENT UNGRILLED NATIONAL BANK NOTE ISSUE. THIS IS EASILY ONE OF THE FINEST ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLES IN EXISTENCE. A REMARKABLE STAMP IN EVERY RESPECT.
In general, the Grilled National Bank Note Issues in superb original-gum condition overshadow their ungrilled counterparts. This is also true for the 90c. However, in the case of the 90c, collectors are frequently misled by the availability of Scott 166, the 1873 Continental printing. The difference in shades is distinct, yet collectors have a tendency to under-rate the 1870 National printing. Most original-gum examples are poorly centered. This example is remarkable for its centering, freshness of color, size of margins and overall appeal.
