VERY FINE. A RARE ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 1870 NATIONAL BANK NOTE WITH I GRILL. THE I GRILLS HAVE RECENTLY BEEN ELEVATED TO MAJOR CATALOGUE NUMBERS IN SCOTT CATALOGUE. A GREAT RARITY.
Starting with the 2013 Scott U.S. Specialized Catalogue, the I Grills have been elevated to major catalogue number status. The listing is now consistent with other grill types such as A, B, C, D, Z, E and F Grills. Collectors will now have to acquire these I Grills in their quest for completeness. We anticipate that collector demand will be difficult to satisfy based on populations we have seen, especially in original-gum condition.
With 2012 P.S.E. certificate.
