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 SPECTACULAR USED EXAMPLE OF THE 1857 ONE-CENT PERFORATED TYPE V, GRADED SUPERB 98 JUMBO BY P.S.E. THIS IS THE WIDEST-MARGINED EXAMPLE WE HAVE EVER ENCOUNTERED AND THE HIGHEST GRADE AWARDED.

Wide side margins are the norm for 1c Type V stamps printed from Plates 5 and 7 to 10, but the enormous and balanced top and bottom margins on this example are extremely unusual. The stamp was printed from Plate 7, one of the first of the Type V plates and one that produced sharp clear impressions. A few bottom-row stamps from Plates 5 and 7 show wide-spaced horizontal perforations, comparable to the wide-spaced stamps from Plate 4.

Ex Wagshal. With 2011 P.F. and P.S.E. certificates (Superb 98 Jumbo; unpriced in SMQ above the grade of 98, SMQ $2,500.00 as 98). This stamp stands alone as the highest grade awarded for a Scott 24 in either used or unused condition

With 2010 P.S.E. certificate (XF-Superb 95 Jumbo; SMQ $435.00 as 95, $1,400.00 as 98). This is the highest grade awarded to date and is shared by only two others. We frankly believe this is under-graded. In our opinion the grade should be Superb 98 Jumbo, if not Gem 100 Jumbo. Accompanied by the cover from which the stamp originated

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB JUMBO USED EXAMPLE OF THE 1857 ONE-CENT TYPE V. DESPITE THIS STAMP'S READY AVAILABILITY, IT IS EXTREMELY DIFFICULT TO FIND IN SUCH SUPERB CONDITION.

Despite the abundant supply of Type V stamps, they are extremely difficult to obtain in the higher grades -- especially with a colored cancel. The stamp offered here has phenomenal visual appeal -- bright color, a beautiful clear red grid cancel, wide and balanced margins and wonderful overall freshness.

Ex Dr. Morris, Dr. Puliafito and "Natalee Grace". With 1991 P.F. and 2009 P.S.E. certificates (XF-Superb 95 Jumbo; SMQ $1,500.00). Only two grade higher (at 98 and 98J) and only two others shares this desirable grade. Of the four equal or higher grades, we have offered three of them (one 95J, the 98 and the 98J) and all have black cancels.

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB JUMBO USED EXAMPLE OF THE 1857 ONE-CENT TYPE V. DESPITE THIS STAMP'S READY AVAILABILITY, IT IS EXTREMELY DIFFICULT TO FIND IN SUCH SUPERB CONDITION.

According to the Neinken book (pp. 309-310), the experience gained in perforating sheets from the original imperforate plates showed that additional horizontal and vertical spacing was needed to accommodate perforations. Increasing the size of the plate was not an option, so it was decided to trim down all four sides of the design to make room for perforations. A new transfer roll was made and used for part of Plate 5. Apparently this roll was replaced by a second transfer roll during the transfer process. This second transfer roll was used for part of Plate 5 and also for subsequent plates thru Plate 10. The first transfer roll, used for part of Plate 5, produced the Type Va sub-type (see lot 61).

Despite the abundant supply of Type V stamps, they are extremely difficult to obtain in higher grades. The stamp offered here has phenomenal visual appeal -- bright color, a beautiful clear red grid cancel, wide and balanced margins, and wonderful overall freshness.

Ex Dr. Morris and Dr. Puliafito. With 1991 P.F. and 2009 P.S.E. certificates (XF-Superb 95 Jumbo; SMQ $750.00 as 95, $2,500.00 as 98). Only two have graded higher to date, and only one other shares this desirable grade.
