EXTREMELY FINE GEM. PROBABLY THE FINEST EXAMPLE OF THE 10-CENT 1870 NATIONAL GRILLED ISSUE IN SUPERB ORIGINAL-GUM CONDITION WITH DOUBLE GRILL.
The double grill is listed but not priced in unused condition. We are unaware of another example trading hands -- this stamp realized $21,000 hammer in our Sale 895, which should be the basis for Scott Catalogue value.
With 2002 P.F. certificate. Scott Retail as normal
VERY FINE AND CHOICE ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 15-CENT 1870 NATIONAL BANK NOTE COMPANY GRILLED ISSUE -- ONE OF THE MOST ELUSIVE OF THE BANK NOTE ISSUES IN SOUND AND ORIGINAL-GUM CONDITION.
The stamp offered here, combining the elements of color, paper, noticeable grill points and full gum, is a true condition rarity.

VERY FINE AND CHOICE. A BEAUTIFUL EXAMPLE OF THE 24-CENT 1870 NATIONAL BANK NOTE GRILLED ISSUE WITH A NEW YORK FOREIGN MAIL CANCELLATION.

FINE AND RARE UNUSED EXAMPLE OF THE 1870 30-CENT NATIONAL BANK NOTE GRILLED ISSUE. ESPECIALLY SCARCE IN SOUND CONDITION.
The 30c National Grilled issue is perhaps the most difficult denomination to obtain in sound and unused condition. The centering on the example here typifies how this issue is normally found, but a review of our computerized records found that only a small potion of those we have offered were sound.
With 1988 P.F. certificate. Scott Retail as no gum
VERY FINE AND CHOICE. AN EXTREMELY RARE ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 1870 90-CENT GRILLED NATIONAL BANK NOTE ISSUE. THE 90-CENT IS THE THIRD MOST DIFFICULT STAMP OF THE NATIONAL BANK NOTE GRILLED ISSUE TO OBTAIN IN SOUND ORIGINAL-GUM CONDITION.
Considering original-gum examples only, after the extremely rare 12c and non-existent 24c, the 90c is the rarest of the 1870 National Grilled Issue. We have offered only four or five that were sound and centered Very Fine in all of our Rarities sales and in the past 14 years of auctions.
Ex Drucker. With 1981 and 2008 P.F. certificates
