EXTREMELY FINE APPEARANCE. ONE OF THE BEST-CENTERED 1868 2-CENT Z GRILL STAMPS EXTANT WITH ANY PART OF ORIGINAL GUM.

If this stamp did not have the nearly-invisible corner crease and minute margin tear noted on the accompanying certificate, it would rank among the finest 2c Z Grill stamps in existence. For the collector who prioritizes choice centering over perfect condition, this is the ideal stamp.

Ex Fox. With 1991 P.F. certificate. Scott Retail as original gum $17,500.00, as no gum
