Price History for Scott 313 in Used 80 Grade
Show Grade on GraphShow all grades
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. A SUPERB USED EXAMPLE OF THE $5.00 1902 ISSUE IN THE FINEST CONDITION OBTAINABLE.

EXTREMELY FINE. EXTRAORDINARY CONDITION FOR THIS USED $5.00 1902 ISSUE.
With 2003 P.F. and 2004 P.S.E. certificates (XF 90 Jumbo; SMQ $1,200.00 as 90, $3,600.00 as 95), the only used copy to grade 90J with only one higher
EXTREMELY FINE. A WONDERFUL USED $5.00 1902 ISSUE WITH SUPERB CENTERING AND WIDE EVEN MARGINS.
We submitted this stamp on behalf of the consignor with every expectation of an XF-Superb 95 grade. Imagine our shock when P.S.E. came back with a VF 80 grade. The perfs are fully formed and the stamp is flawless, so the only possible justification for the low grade is the cancel. However, dollar-value 1902's typically have double-oval cancels, and this strike is actually quite neat, leaving most of the design unobscured. The stamp is a Gem, and the accompanying 2007 P.S.E. certificate is worth keeping as a conversation piece.
