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 1057, Lot 714, 1870-71 National Bank Note Co. H Grill (Scott 134-144)30c Black, H. Grill (143). Original gum, lightly hinged, many discernible grill points, deep charcoal shade and sharp proof-like impression, we detect a small expert repair at bottom center which is only visible in fluid or under high magnification, accompanying certificates diverge on this with the P.F. agreeing and P.S.E. not noting any flaw

EXTREMELY FINE APPEARANCE. ONE OF THE BEST-CENTERED ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLES OF THE 1870 30-CENT NATIONAL BANK NOTE GRILLED ISSUE EXTANT.

With 2003 P.F. certificate noting repair. With clear 2013 P.S.E. certificate (OGph, XF 90; unpriced in SMQ above the grade of 80, SMQ $19,200.00 as 80). This is the highest grade awarded in the P.S.E. Population Report. Only one other full original-gum Scott 143 has even been graded (Fine 70, offered in lot 713)
