Price History for US Scott 124 in Used
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 GEM. A BEAUTIFUL USED EXAMPLE OF THE 2-CENT 1869 RE-ISSUE, AND EASILY ONE OF THE FINEST IN EXISTENCE. THIS STAMP HAS BEEN GRADED XF-SUPERB 95 JUMBO BY P.S.E. -- THIS IS THE ONLY EXAMPLE TO ACHIEVE 95J, WHICH IS THE HIGHEST AWARDED TO DATE.
The 2c 1869 Pictorial Re-Issue is one of the most difficult values of the set (after the 3c) to obtain in such superb condition and with such wide margins. We are aware of only one other which compares favorably to the stamp offered here. That other stamp was purchased by us for a client in the Shreve Floyd sale in 2001 for $12,000 hammer.
With 2002 P.F. and 2008 P.S.E. certificates (XF-Superb 95 Jumbo; SMQ $3,200.00 as 95, $6,400.00 as 98). This is the only example to achieve this grade, which is the highest awarded to date.
EXTREMELY FINE. A BEAUTIFUL USED EXAMPLE OF THE 2-CENT 1869 PICTORIAL RE-ISSUE. RARE IN SUCH CHOICE CONDITION.
Ex Kirke. With 1998, 2005 and 2006 P.F. certificates (XF 90). With 2007 P.S.E. certificate (XF 90; SMQ $2,000.00). Only four grade higher (two at 95 and two at 95J, we have only sold one, a 95J, back in 2008), only three others share this grade
