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 1159, Lot Number 205, 1893 Columbian Issue (Scott 230-245)$4.00 Rose Carmine (244a), $4.00 Rose Carmine (244a)$4.00 Rose Carmine (244a). Pastel color, perfect centering with wide and balanced margins, face-free strike of target cancel, tiny natural wood fiber inclusion

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. THIS STUNNING USED EXAMPLE OF THE $4.00 COLUMBIAN HAS BEEN GRADED SUPERB 98 BY P.S.E. THIS IS THE HIGHEST GRADE AWARDED AND IT IS SHARED BY NO OTHERS.

With 2015 P.S.E. certificate (Superb 98; unpriced in SMQ above the grade of 95). This is the only used $4.00 Columbian in either of the listed shades (Scott 244 and 244a) graded Superb 98. By way of comparison, for the other used denominations higher than $2.00, there are two used $3.00 stamps graded 98 (SMQ $10,750.00) and there are two used $5.00 graded 98 (SMQ $13,500.00). Given the population of this single $4.00 at this lofty grade, we feel the SMQ value for the $5.00 is an appropriate comparison. The Scott Catalogue supplement agrees and assigns a $13,500.00 value to the used $4.00 graded 98
