VERY FINE. A RARE SOUND UNUSED EXAMPLE OF THE 12-CENT 1870 NATIONAL BANK NOTE COMPANY GRILLED ISSUE. THIS IS THE MOST DIFFICULT DENOMINATION OF THE SET TO OBTAIN IN UNUSED CONDITION.
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 those have faults or are off-center. The stamp offered here, with clear grill points, rich color, choice centering for the issue and in sound condition, is a true condition rarity.

FRESH AND FINE UNUSED EXAMPLE OF THE 1870 30-CENT NATIONAL BANK NOTE COMPANY GRILLED ISSUE.
The 30c National Grilled issue is one of the couple most difficult denominations to obtain in sound and unused condition. The centering on the example here typifies how this issue is normally found, but a review of our computerized records found that only a few of those we have offered were sound.
With 1980 P.F. certificate
VERY FINE APPEARANCE. AN EXCEEDINGLY RARE ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 1870 90-CENT GRILLED NATIONAL BANK NOTE ISSUE. THE 90-CENT IS THE THIRD MOST DIFFICULT OF THE NATIONAL BANK NOTE GRILLED ISSUES TO OBTAIN IN ORIGINAL-GUM CONDITION.
Considering original-gum examples only, after the extremely rare 12c and 30c and non-existent 24c, the 90c is the rarest of the 1870 National Grilled Issue.
