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.

PSE 98
 
Sale Number 1032, Lot Number 3394, 1894-98 Bureau Issues, Watermarked and Color Change (Scott 264-284)$1.00 Black, Ty. I (276), $1.00 Black, Ty. I (276)$1.00 Black, Ty. I (276). Perfectly centered with wide margins, intense shade on bright white paper, unobtrusive cancel leaves design clearly visible

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A MAGNIFICENT USED EXAMPLE OF THE $1.00 TYPE I WATERMARKED 1895 BUREAU ISSUE, WHICH HAS BEEN AWARDED THE GRADE OF SUPERB 98 BY P.S.E. -- EASILY ONE OF THE FINEST COPIES IN EXISTENCE.

The dollar-value Bureaus are rarely found with centering that would qualify for a high numerical grade, but in used condition they are further handicapped by heavy registry cancels, which almost invariably knock points off the final grade. The $1.00 Type I 1895 Issue offered here is extraordinary not only for its precise centering and wide margins, but the lightly-struck cancel leaves the entire design visible.

With 2011 P.F. and 2007 P.S.E. certificates (Superb 98; SMQ $2,500.00). This is the highest grade awarded and only one other shares this lofty grade -- a statistic that has not changed in four years
