THE UNIQUE MINT BLOCK OF FOUR OF THE 1870 15¢ NATIONAL BANKNOTE I GRILL ISSUE.

Starting with the 2013 Scott U.S. Specialized Catalogue, the 1870 Issue "I" Grills were elevated to major catalogue number status. The "I" grills are far scarcer than the regular "H" grills, and collector demand has proved this to be true. Examples for every value up to the 90¢ have been certified, with the high value exceptionally rare. There are only seven unused examples of the 15¢ "I" grill recorded, including this unique block of four.
