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 1062, Lot 358, 1870-71 National Bank Note Co. Grilled Issue (Scott 134-144)30c Black, H. Grill (143). Intense shade and impression, several visible grill points (accompanying P.S.E. certificate states "weakly impressed grill", but this is normal for this issue), far better centering than normally seen with balanced margins, neat centrally-struck three-ring cancel

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. AN OUTSTANDING USED EXAMPLE OF THE 1870 30-CENT NATIONAL BANK NOTE COMPANY GRILLED ISSUE. THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST DIFFICULT DENOMINATIONS TO OBTAIN IN SOUND AND CENTERED CONDITION.

The 30c National Bank Note Co. Grilled Issue is normally seen with small margins, or is off-center. If one finds a centered copy, it more often than not turns out to have a small flaw. The stamp offered here is truly the exception to the rule.

With 1983 P.F. and 2009 P.S.E. certificates (XF 90; SMQ $7,500.00). This is the highest grade awarded and only one other shares it -- offered in our sale of the Merlin collection in 2012. The stamp offered here has the more attractive cancel of the two graded 90
