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 1197, Lot Number 1876, 1894-1903 Bureau Issues (Scott 246-284)$1.00 Black, Ty. II (276A), $1.00 Black, Ty. II (276A)$1.00 Black, Ty. II (276A). Deep shade and detailed impression, wide and essentially perfectly balanced margins, neat oval grid cancel

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB USED EXAMPLE OF THE 1895 $1.00 TYPE II WATERMARKED BUREAU ISSUE, WHICH HAS BEEN GRADED SUPERB 98 BY P.S.E. -- THIS IS THE HIGHEST GRADE AWARDED IN ANY CATEGORY.

With 2019 P.S.E. certificate (Superb 98; unpriced in SMQ above the grade of 95, SMQ $1,400.00 as 95). This is the highest grade awarded and it is shared by no others in any condition (used or unused). To extrapolate a potential SMQ value for this issue in the grade of 98, we looked at the other dollar value 1894-95 Bureaus in used condition. Six of the seven other dollar values are priced in SMQ in used condition at both 95 and 98. The average premium for a 98 is 2.55-times the price of a 95, meaning the potential SMQ value of this stamp is $3,500.00 (without taking into account that this is a population of one)
