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 978, Lot Number 1042, 1870-88 Bank Note Issues10c Brown, With Secret Mark (188), 10c Brown, With Secret Mark (188)10c Brown, With Secret Mark (188). Mint N.H., deep rich color and proof-like impression, unusually choice centering with wide and balanced margins

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A RARE MINT NEVER-HINGED EXAMPLE OF THE 10-CENT 1879 AMERICAN BANK NOTE COMPANY ISSUE WITH SECRET MARK. THIS STUNNING STAMP HAS BEEN GRADED XF-SUPERB 95 BY P.S.E., WHICH IS THE HIGHEST GRADE AWARDED TO DATE.

Unlike other values of the 1879 Issue, there are virtually no 10c stamps in Mint Never-Hinged condition. A thorough review of auction catalogues, including sales of the Caspary, Close, Sinkler, Col. Green, Lilly, Braus, Wunderlich and Klein collections, among others, produced no Mint N.H. singles and no blocks containing Mint N.H. stamps. Using Power Search, we located a block of six with three Mint N.H. stamps and three other unduplicated copies. We doubt that more than a half-dozen or so Mint N.H. copies exist in total.

P.S.E. encapsulated (XF-Superb 95; SMQ $33,500.00). This is the highest grade awarded to date. Curiously, only two Mint N.H. have been graded, and both were graded equally.
