Sale 983 — The Hampshire Collection of United States Stamps
Sale Date — Tuesday, 23 February, 2010
Category — 1867-68 Grilled Issue
EXTREMELY FINE AND ONE OF THE WIDEST-MARGINED EXAMPLES OF THE 1868 15-CENT E GRILL WE HAVE EVER ENCOUNTERED.
As an indication of the rarity of 15c E Grill stamps with original gum, the Scott Catalogue values Scott 91 at $5,250.00 without gum, and $13,500.00 with original gum. This stamp, with its unusually wide margins, full original gum, and overall freshness, is truly a remarkable rarity.
Ex Lessin and Odeneal. With 1997 and 2007 P.F. certificates
