Deep rich color and proof-like impression, gorgeous centering with wide and balanced margins, light cancel leaves entire design clearly visible, P.F. certificate notes light diagonal crease at right, but this shows faintly only for two seconds when first placed in fluid and does not flash white when drying, furthermore not a trace shows under cross-lighting, which makes us wonder if this is a paper mesh factor (for example, a flaw in the screen during production) and not really a crease, in any case Extremely Fine Gem appearance with a clear P.S.E. graded certificate as XF-Superb 95 (SMQ $3,500.00), so quite desirable for a collector who cares more about stamps than experts' opinions (or for a dealer with a paper shredder), ex Natalee Grace, with 2012 P.F. and 2009 P.S.E. certificates

The 3c Z Grill was in production for only a short period of time before the device was replaced with the F Grill. Only a small number of 3c sheets were fed thru the Z Grill, which accounts for the rarity of surviving examples.

Ex Natalee Grace. With 1987 and 2003 P.F. and 2012 P.S.E. certificates.
