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.

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB USED EXAMPLE OF THE 30-CENT 1869 PICTORIAL RE-ISSUE, GRADED SUPERB 98 BY P.S.E. THIS IS THE HIGHEST GRADE AWARDED.

SMQ estimates that approximately 40 examples of the 30-cent 1875 Re-Issue are known used. Our experience has been that many are either off-center or have small faults. The P.S.E. Population Report bears this out as it records only two used stamps at the 98 grade -- this example and the example sold in our sale of the Nick Kirke collection (Sale 1032, lot 3210). Working down the grading chart, two are graded 95 and two are graded 90.

With 2009 P.S.E. certificate (Superb 98; SMQ $23,000.00). Only one other shares this grade, and none grade higher.
