Price History for US Scott 117 in OGnh
Show Grade on Graph
Three things to keep in mind when looking at the above results (unsolds are not included):
- It is important to look at the individual data points listed below. Price swings up may be due to varieties such as broken hat or other positives such as cancels. Price swings down may be due to factors such as faults on items that would have graded higher if they were sound, and may not be considered as desirable as a sound copy in this grade.
- When looking at multiple grades on the graph, grades with the same population numbers may show overlapping.
- At the time of an auction, the SMQ value has already been published and is available to bidders. Increases or decreases in SMQ value prior to the auction may affect the price realized.

EXTREMELY FINE JUMBO. A BEAUTIFUL AND RARE MINT NEVER-HINGED EXAMPLE OF THE 12-CENT 1869 PICTORIAL ISSUE. THIS IS THE FIRST MINT NEVER-HINGED EXAMPLE OF THIS STAMP WE HAVE OFFERED SINCE KEEPING COMPUTERIZED RECORDS AND IS QUITE POSSIBLY THE ONLY CHOICE MINT NEVER-HINGED COPY IN EXISTENCE..
A search of past auction catalogues failed to find this stamp's equal. The few blocks that exist have either disturbed original gum or are hinged, and so will not yield Mint N.H. singles.
With 1989 P.F. certificate. P.S.E. encapsulated (VF-XF 85 Jumbo). Unpriced in SMQ or Scott in Mint N.H. condition. In the absence of any reliable pricing information, we have conservatively estimated this unique stamp's market value.
