EXTREMELY FINE GEM. THIS STUNNING MINT NEVER-HINGED EXAMPLE OF SCOTT C5 HAS ACHIEVED THE PERFECT P.S.E. GRADE OF GEM 100 -- THE HIGHEST AWARDED.

The first two series of United States Air Post issues, Scott C1-C6, are among the most recognizable U.S. stamps. They were printed in relatively small quantities compared to later issues -- Scott C5 saw just over 5.3 million stamps issued, versus over 42 million for Scott C7. C5 is also one of the most difficult of the series to obtain in such a high grade, based on Population Report numbers.

With 2020 P.S.E. certificate (Gem 100; SMQ $3,900.00). This is the highest grade awarded and it is shared by only one other. Despite the other example realizing $8,500 hammer in our Sale 1166, the SMQ value then and now is the same
