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 968, Lot Number 27, 1857-60 Issue (Scott 18-39)1c Blue, Ty. III (21), 1c Blue, Ty. III (21)1c Blue, Ty. III (21). Original gum, described as Mint Never-Hinged on P.F. certificate, but the new P.S.E. certificate states previously hinged due to three tiny natural gum irregularities and a very faint fingerprint in one corner—we have seen the same kind of natural gum blemishes on large N.H. blocks and sheets of 1851-57 Issues, so it seems grossly unfair to disqualify this stamp as Mint N.H. because of them—deep rich Plate 4 color and proof-like impression on bright paper, showing clear breaks at top and bottom (the defining characteristic of the type), the gum is pristine and, as noted, has a few small natural skips and faint fingerprint

VERY FINE AND CHOICE. A GORGEOUS EXAMPLE OF THE PERFORATED ONE-CENT TYPE III. VERY FEW EXIST IN ANY TYPE OF ACCEPTABLE ORIGINAL-GUM CONDITION. IN OUR OPINION AND THE OPINION OF THE PHILATELIC FOUNDATION, THIS STAMP IS MINT NEVER-HINGED.

With 1990 and 1995 P.F. certificates (as Mint N.H.), and 2008 P.S.E. certificate (OGph, F-VF 75). Scott Retail as hinged.
