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 1172, Lot 610, 1901 Pan-American Issue (Scott 294-299)5c Pan-American (297). Mathematically perfect centering, intense colors, neat vertical bars machine cancel, absolutely pristine

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. AN INCOMPARABLE USED EXAMPLE OF THE 5-CENT PAN-AMERICAN ISSUE, WHICH HAS BEEN AWARDED THE PERFECT GRADE OF GEM 100 FROM P.S.E. -- THIS IS THE HIGHEST GRADE AWARDED AND IS EQUALED BY NO OTHERS.

With 2017 P.S.E. certificate (Gem 100; unpriced in SMQ above the grade of 98, SMQ $1,750.00 as 98). This is the highest grade awarded to a used 5c Pan-American and it is the only example to achieve this grade. The next highest is a single example graded 98. In fact, the only other Pan-American which has been graded Gem 100 in used condition by P.S.E. is the 2c, with two examples. When quantities issued are factored in, this 5c Gem 100 becomes even more extraordinary. More than 200 million of the 2c were issued, versus just 7.2 million of the 5c This is a used early commemorative of exceptional beauty
