FRESH AND FINE. AN ATTRACTIVE ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 3-CENT 1867 EXPERIMENTAL ALL-OVER GRILL. THIS DIFFICULT ISSUE IS RARELY SEEN WITH SUCH OVERALL FRESHNESS.

The experimental A Grill covered the entire stamp. On most examples, this caused the perforations to virtually disintegrate when the stamps were separated. When the unsatisfactory effects of the grilling process were observed during this experimental stage, the grill was reduced to a smaller area within the borders of each stamp. Many also tend to be soiled, due to the nature of the heavy grilling which attracts foreign matter. The example offered here is one of the freshest we have encountered.

Blue "W.H.C." (Colson) backstamp.
