Sale Number 1133, Lot Number 131, 1867-68 Grilled Issue (Scott 79-101)5c Brown, F. Grill (95), 5c Brown, F. Grill (95)5c Brown, F. Grill (95). Block of four, original gum, lightly hinged, some offset on gum from other 5c stamps and slight flaking of ink in printed design (as found on most of the known blocks), deep rich color, clearly-defined grills, almost perfectly centered

EXTREMELY FINE APPEARANCE. A RARE ORIGINAL-GUM BLOCK OF FOUR OF THE 1868 5-CENT F GRILL.

As this block demonstrates, the 5c 1861-68 Issue was printed from plates with closely-spaced subjects that left little room for the large 12-gauge perforations. In this instance, the perforations were applied almost exactly within the narrow spaces between the stamps.

With 2015 P.S.E. certificate (DOG, F 70) describing the gum as "slightly disturbed"
