Arago: B. Grill

Up
B. Grill

Its large size distinguishes the B grill from other grilled stamps. It is 22 points high by 18 points wide (18 X 15 mm) and 'points up' in orientation when viewed from the back. The larger size of this grill may have proved a problem in production, and it was quickly replaced with smaller grills.

All four known examples of the B grill appeared on a single cover posted in Mason, Texas, in February 1869. All are denominated at three cents.
