EXTREMELY FINE GEM. AN EXCEPTIONALLY CHOICE ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 15-CENT UNGRILLED NATIONAL BANK NOTE ISSUE IN THE FINEST CONDITION ATTAINABLE.

The 15c 1870 National Grilled Issue (Scott 141) is widely recognized as an extremely rare stamp in choice original-gum condition. Less well known is the fact that its ungrilled counterpart -- Scott 152 -- is comparably challenging to find in such condition. This stamp has all of the National printing characteristics -- vibrant shade, sharp perf teeth and slightly brownish gum -- but it defies the norm by having exceptional attributes of centering, light hinging and freshness.

EXTREMELY FINE. THE 30-CENT NATIONAL BANK NOTE COMPANY UNGRILLED ISSUE IS ONE OF THE MOST DIFFICULT OF ALL BANK NOTES TO FIND IN SOUND, WELL-CENTERED, ORIGINAL-GUM CONDITION.

During the past 15 years, we have offered a few superb original-gum examples of National and Continental 30c Bank Notes (Scott 143, 154 and 165). Included in this total is a handful of the Continental printing, Scott 165, which is distinguished from its National Ungrilled counterpart by shade and the shape of the perforations. For the Ungrilled National printing, Scott 154, we have offered only about five hinged stamps in sound, Extremely Fine condition.

EXTREMELY FINE GEM ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 90-CENT NATIONAL BANK NOTE ISSUE. AN EXCEEDINGLY DIFFICULT CLASSIC STAMP TO FIND IN THIS SUPERIOR QUALITY.

In general, the Grilled National Bank Note Issues in superb original-gum condition overshadow their ungrilled counterparts. This is also true for the 90c. However, in the case of the 90c, collectors are frequently misled by the availability of Scott 166, the 1873 Continental printing. The difference in shades is distinct, yet collectors have a tendency to under-rate the 1870 National printing. Most original-gum examples are poorly centered. This example is remarkable for its centering, full and fresh gum and intense color.

With 1992 P.F. certificate
