Price History for US Scott 290 in OG
Show Grade on GraphShow none
Three things to keep in mind when looking at the above results (unsolds are not included):
- 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.
- When looking at multiple grades on the graph, grades with the same population numbers may show overlapping.
- 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. THIS IS THE ONLY EXAMPLE OF THE 10-CENT TRANS-MISSISSIPPI ISSUE TO RECEIVE THE PERFECT GRADE OF GEM 100 FROM P.S.E. A SUPERB STAMP IN EVERY RESPECT.
A review of the P.S.E. Population Report shows how rare the Trans-Mississippi Issue is in the grade of Gem 100, especially among the higher denominations. Above the 8c value, only this 10c and a single hinged $1.00 have achieved the perfect Gem 100 grade (there is also one used $1.00 graded 100J).
With 2017 P.S.E. certificate (OGph, Gem 100; unpriced in SMQ above the grade of 98). This is the highest grade awarded and is shared by no others in any condition (used, hinged or Mint N.H.)
