Three things to keep in mind when looking at the above results (unsolds are not included):

  1. 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.
  2. When looking at multiple grades on the graph, grades with the same population numbers may show overlapping.
  3. 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.

This information is provided for hobbyists and is not intended to represent philatelic material as an investment or financial instrument. Past performance is neither an indication nor guarantee of future performance. Every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of the information, but Siegel Auction Galleries (including its representatives and affiliates) is not liable for errors or omissions of any kind.

Sale 996, Lot 3086, 1851 3c Dull Red - Used3c Dull Red, Ty. II (11A). Jumbo margins all around with at least a trace of all eight adjoining stamps, bright color, neat red circular datestamp

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. THIS SPECTACULAR STAMP HAS BEEN AWARDED THE ULTIMATE GRADE OF GEM 100 JUMBO BY P.S.E. -- ONLY THREE OTHER EXAMPLES OF SCOTT 11 OR 11A HAVE ACHIEVED THIS GRADE TO DATE.

Many collectors have a tendency to discount how difficult it is to find imperforate classics in such superb condition. The assumption is that there are multiples which can be split to "make" perfect singles. However, one would need a lightly-cancelled block of nine, with no wrinkles or other minor defects, to produce a single such as the one offered here.

With 2010 P.S.E. certificate (Gem 100 Jumbo; SMQ $450.00 as 98, unpriced in the higher grades). Only one other example of No. 11A and two of No. 11 have achieved this perfect grade
