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.

Sale 1032, Lot 3229, 1870-71 National Bank Note Co. Issue, H and I Grills (Scott 134-144, 135A-141A)7c Vermilion, I. Grill (138A). Brilliant color, cancelled by bold strike of fancy New York Foreign Mail Geometric, perfectly centered with wide margins

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A STUNNING USED EXAMPLE OF THE 7-CENT NATIONAL BANK NOTE COMPANY I GRILL. THIS STAMP HAS BEEN GRADED SUPERB 98 BY P.S.E., WHICH IS THE HIGHEST GRADE AWARDED FOR EITHER 7-CENT GRILL TYPE.

Ex "Beverly Hills." With 2011 P.F. and P.S.E. certificates (Superb 98; SMQ $10,750.00 as H. Grill). This is the highest grade awarded and only one other shares this grade. SMQ and the Population Report do not yet differentiate between the two grill types, but the other example to achieve this grade is an H Grill. Since the I Grill is scarcer than the H Grill, we would expect the I Grill SMQ values to be separately reported and adjusted upward to reflect the new Scott listings. Scott Catalogue value is based on 2012 listing which does not distinguish between the grill types
