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.

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB EXAMPLE OF THE PERFORATED ONE-CENT TYPE IIIa FROM PLATE 11 IN THE FINEST CONDITION ATTAINABLE.

Plates 11 and 12 were probably made in June 1860, with less than six months left in Toppan, Carpenter's contract. The earliest known use from either plate is January 1861, a relatively short time before the stamps were demonetized. New transfer rolls were created to lay out plates 11 and 12. Three types are known from these plates: Type I (Scott 18 -- Plate 12 only), Type II (Scott 20) and Type IIIa (Scott 22).

As illustrations of stamps from Plates 11 and 12 in the Neinken book show, the centering and impressions of stamps from these plates was rather poor ("Poor perforating was the rule rather than the exception" -- Neinken book, p. 473). The stamp offered here, with rich color, unusually wide margins and with the design completely free and clear of the perforations at both top and bottom, is truly remarkable.

With 1994 P.F. and 2009 P.S.E. certificates (XF-Superb 95 Jumbo; SMQ $3,500.00 as 95, unpriced as 98). This is the highest grade awarded to date and only one other shares this grade.
