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. A MAGNIFICENT MINT NEVER-HINGED EXAMPLE OF THE 30-CENT 1890 ISSUE.

In our experience the 30c 1890 is the second most difficult of the 1890 Small Bank Note Issue to obtain in choice Mint N.H. condition (the 90c is somewhat more challenging). The few examples graded 95 or better have brought thousands of dollars at auction. This balanced and essentially perfectly-centered stamp is worth its full SMQ value, in our opinion.

With 2002 P.F. and 2009 P.S.E. certificates (XF 90; SMQ $2,800.00).
