Arago: D. Grill

Up
D. Grill

The D. Grill was used on two stamps starting in early 1868. The 3-cent Washington was the first stamp to be produced with the grill. The 2-cent Jackson stamp was also produced by National Bank Note Company with a D. Grill, but for a much shorter time than the 3-cent Washington. The grill is 15 points in width by 17 to 18 points in height. An estimated 500,000 3-cent Washington stamps with the D. Grill are believed to have been produced along with 200,000 2-cent Jackson stamps.
