VERY FINE. AN EXCEEDINGLY RARE BLOCK OF SIX OF THE 10-CENT GRILLED NATIONAL BANK NOTE ISSUE, WHICH IS THE LARGEST RECORDED UNUSED MULTIPLE.
We are able to find only five other blocks of six in our records. Two are from the 1954 Eno sale and have probably been split apart. A third is ex Caspary, Lilly and Dr. Graves ("Argentum"). The fourth is a vertical block, ex Braus and Klein. The fifth was offered in our 1992 Rarities sale.
With 2001 P.F. certificate. Scott Retail as a block of four and a pair.
FINE AND RARE UNUSED EXAMPLE OF THE 12-CENT NATIONAL BANK NOTE COMPANY GRILLED ISSUE.
Aside from the 24c, which does not exist unused, the 12c is the most difficult to obtain unused, in any condition. Probably less than ten exist with original gum, and many of these have faults.
Signed in pencil "Guaranteed Grilled J.M. Bartels". With 1992 P.F. certificate. Scott Retail as original gum $32,500.00. Scott Retail as no gum
EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB EXAMPLE OF THE 15-CENT 1870 NATIONAL GRILLED ISSUE. A RARE STAMP IN SUCH CHOICE ORIGINAL-GUM CONDITION.
The 15c National Grilled Issue is one of the most difficult of all National Bank Note Company issues to find in well-centered, original-gum condition. The stamp offered here, combining the elements of color, paper, centering, noticeable grill points and original gum, is a true condition rarity.
With 1997 P.F. certificate
VERY FINE. AN OUTSTANDING AND VERY RARE USED EXAMPLE OF THE 1870 24-CENT NATIONAL BANK NOTE COMPANY GRILLED ISSUE CANCELLED IN PURPLE.
A Power Search review reveals how rare the 24c Grilled Issue is with a colored cancel other than red or blue (both of which are also scarce to rare). We have offered no other examples cancelled in purple since 1993 and in all our Rarities sales since 1964.
With 1998 P.F. certificate. Scott lists but does not price this issue with a purple cancel. Scott applies $750.00 and $1,000.00 premiums for red and blue cancels respectively. Scott Retail for black cancel
