Question
3c locomotive
3c locomotive  
I think i may have us #125, i see no grill.

Answer
The grill on the 1869 issue is relatively easy to remove. The stamp can not be certified as a #125 unless it meets other specific criteria as well as not having a grill and To know for sure, you would need to send it for actual examination by an expert service.
