Original gum, lightly hinged, unusually well-defined grill, intense shade and proof-like impression on post-office fresh paper, tiny toned spot just over Jackson's eye is barely noticeable

FINE. AN EXCEEDINGLY RARE ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 1868 2-CENT D GRILL. PARTICULARLY SCARCE WITH SUCH A HIGH DEGREE OF FRESHNESS.

A thorough search of past auction catalogues reveals that the 2c D Grill in original-gum condition is conspicuously absent from most important collections. The finest examples are contained in the intact block of four, ex Caspary, Lilly and Klein. The stamp offered here, with full original gum, unusually clear grill, proof-like impression and fresh paper, is a rarity of the highest order.

With 1980 and 2007 P.F. certificates, the former not mentioning the toned spot
