FINE-VERY FINE BLOCK. A SCARCE ORIGINAL-GUM BLOCK OF TEN OF THE 1870 2-CENT NATIONAL BANK NOTE COMPANY GRILLED ISSUE.
Scott Retail as two blocks of four and a pair.
VERY FINE AND CHOICE. THIS IS THE FINEST KNOWN ORIGINAL-GUM BLOCK OF THE 1870 15-CENT NATIONAL BANK NOTE COMPANY GRILLED ISSUE, AND IS THE LARGEST RECORDED MULTIPLE FOR THE ISSUE.
Perhaps three or four unused blocks of four are known. One has creases affecting all stamps, and another has perforations touching the design on one or more sides. The block offered here, with full original gum, clear grill points and marvelous color, is the finest in existence.
