EXTREMELY FINE GEM. THIS STUNNING MINT NEVER-HINGED EXAMPLE OF THE 2-CENT PERF 10 PANAMA-PACIFIC ISSUE IS GRADED GEM 100 BY P.S.E. -- THE HIGHEST GRADE AWARDED AND THE ONLY EXAMPLE TO ACHIEVE IT.

Ex Dr. DeBroff. With 2010 P.S.E. certificate (Gem 100; SMQ $3,250.00). This is the highest grade awarded and it is the only example to achieve it. SMQ value is far too low, especially given the low Population Report numbers at the highest grades. We sold the only example graded 98 Jumbo for $15,500 hammer in 2010 (as the highest grade awarded at the time), and the last example graded 98 we sold (population of five) brought more than the SMQ value of this 100.

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. THIS IS WITHOUT QUESTION ONE OF THE FINEST MINT NEVER-HINGED EXAMPLES OF THE 5-CENT PERF 10 PANAMA-PACIFIC ISSUE. THIS MAGNIFICENT STAMP IS GRADED SUPERB 98 JUMBO BY P.S.E. -- THE HIGHEST GRADE AWARDED.

Ex Dr. DeBroff. With 1983 P.F. and 2009 P.S.E. certificates (Superb 98 Jumbo; SMQ $3,850.00 in no way reflects its true rarity -- the SMQ value for a 98 is only $250.00 less than this). This is the highest grade awarded and it is shared by only two others, a statistic that has not changed since 2009. We have offered only one of the others, which realized $10,000 hammer in 2017
