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 Number 1192, Lot Number 252, 1870-71 National Bank Note Co. Issues (Scott 134-155)90c Carmine (155), 90c Carmine (155)90c Carmine (155). Original gum, h.r., exceptional centering with balanced and wide margins, vivid color on fresh paper

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 1870 90-CENT UNGRILLED NATIONAL BANK NOTE ISSUE, GRADED XF-SUPERB 95. THIS IS THE HIGHEST GRADE AWARDED.

In general, the Grilled National Bank Note Issues in superb original-gum condition overshadow their ungrilled counterparts. This is also true for the 90c. However, in the case of the 90c, collectors are frequently misled by the availability of Scott 166, the 1873 Continental printing. The difference in shades is distinct, yet collectors have a tendency to under-rate the 1870 National printing. Most original-gum examples are poorly centered. This example is remarkable for its centering and freshness of color.

With 2017 P.S.E. certificate (OGh, XF-Superb 95; SMQ $18,500.00). Only two other stamps share this grade, with none higher

VERY FINE. A RARE PLATE NUMBER SINGLE OF THE 1870 90-CENT UNGRILLED NATIONAL BANK NOTE ISSUE.

This Bank Note Issue is one of the scarcest with a plate number. Power Search contains only one other example with a plate number (single, block or strip), a top-margin single offered in our 1966 "Ambassador" sale. The Chapin census lists three strips, but at least one of them is Scott 166, not 155.

With 2000 P.F. and 2000 and 2006 P.S.E. certificates (OGph, VF 80; SMQ $5,000.00 with no premium for the plate number).
