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 1010, Lot 30, 1857-60 Issue5c Orange Brown, Ty. II (30). Mint N.H., beautiful rich color in the warm Orange Brown shade, choice centering with perfs clear of design on all sides

VERY FINE AND CHOICE. THIS IS THE FIRST MINT NEVER-HINGED EXAMPLE OF THE 5-CENT 1861 ORANGE BROWN SHADE WE HAVE OFFERED SINCE KEEPING COMPUTERIZED RECORDS. A RARITY OF THE HIGHEST ORDER.

This was the last 5c to be issued before demonetization and was only used for a very short period of time (earliest documented use is May 8, 1861). Unused remainders were discovered in the South after the war, and so unused copies are readily available. However, examples of this printing are rare in Mint N.H. condition. In fact, we could not locate a Mint N.H. single in our database using Power Search.

With 2011 P.S.E. certificate (VF-XF 85; unlisted in SMQ in Mint N.H. condition). Unlisted in Scott as Mint N.H. Scott Retail as hinged.
