US Stamps Values Scott # 137: 6c 1870 Lincoln Grill. Robert Siegel Auction Galleries, Apr 2015, Sale 1096, Lot 264

6c Carmine, H. Grill (137). Block of four, original gum, few small hinge slivers where minor perf separations sensibly reinforced, clear grills on all four stamps FINE-VERY FINE. THIS IS BY FAR THE FINEST OF THE THREE 1870 6-CENT NATIONAL BANK NOTE COMPANY GRILLED ISSUE BLOCKS WE RECORD, AND THIS IS THE ONLY EXAMPLE WE HAVE OFFERED SINCE KEEPING COMPUTERIZED RECORDS. A REMARKABLE LINCOLN-THEMED MULTIPLE. After searching for multiples of the 6c 1870 Grill (Scott 137 and 137A), we were surprised that blocks are so rare. None were offered in Caspary, Eno or other major block collections. A review of all 28 Colonel Green sales also failed to find one. Two others were offered in the Walter C. Klein sale (one ex Close and Ainsworth, the other ex Sinkler), but both have perfs impinging on the design. The Brookman book notes one was offered in the 1933 Hind sale, which is described in the sale catalogue as well-centered, but not illustrated — we assume that block is the one offered here.
