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.

Mathematically precise centering with gigantic margins all around, vivid color, beautiful even perforations all around, neat strike of "5" in four-ring target cancel and trace of additional cancel at left

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. THIS PHENOMENAL STAMP HAS BEEN AWARDED THE GRADE OF GEM 100 JUMBO BY P.S.E. -- THIS IS THE HIGHEST GRADE POSSIBLE AND THIS IS THE ONLY STAMP TO ACHIEVE THIS PERFECT GRADE IN ANY CATEGORY.

Ex Natalee Grace. With 2000 P.F. and 2009 P.S.E. certificates (Gem 100 Jumbo; unpriced in SMQ above the grade of 98, SMQ $960.00 as 98). This is the only example of this stamp in any category to achieve the highest grade possible on the grading scale. The margin size is significantly greater than the Mint N.H. copy graded Gem 100 and offered in our sale of the Whitman collection. This is also one of only six used Bank Note stamps (five different Scott Nos.) between Scott 134 and 218 to achieve this perfect grade. Finally, it is also the only stamp -- unused or used -- with a denomination higher than 10c to achieve this grade before the 1898 Trans-Mississippi Issue.
