This looks at first glance to be an ordinary US #65 ---the three-cent stamp of 1861 (my favorite stamp), but it has a grill. It is actually a US #83 issued in 1867 with a C-grill measuring about 13 x16mm. This particular stamp has the Weston provisional precancel "W". The white "pin hole" that appears just above the right-most arm of the "W" is a scanning error. I don't know how it happened but it is not an actual hole and does not appear on the actual stamp.
