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 968A, Lot Number 313, 1894 Unwatermarked Bureau Issue (Scott 246-263)$2.00 Bright Blue (262), $2.00 Bright Blue (262)$2.00 Bright Blue (262). Mint N.H., beautiful color and detailed impression, choice centering with well-balanced margins

EXTREMELY FINE. A RARE MINT NEVER-HINGED EXAMPLE OF THE 1894 $2.00 UNWATERMARKED BUREAU ISSUE.

The higher-value 1894 Unwatermarked Bureau Issue can be difficult to find in well-centered and sound condition, due to production problems. Mint Never-Hinged examples in superior grades, such as the stamp offered here, should be considered great condition rarities. This is one of four $2.00 1894 stamps we have offered in Mint Never-Hinged condition in the last 13 years, the other three having much inferior centering.

Ex Scarsdale. With 1984 and 1999 P.F. certificates. With 2004 P.S.E. certificate (XF 90). This is the highest grade awarded to date (one other shares this grade).
