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 1245, Lot 1698, 1902-08 Issues (Scott 300-320)5c Blue, Coil (317). Pair, original gum, outstanding centering with wide margins, intense shade and impression on crisp paper

EXTREMELY FINE. A BEAUTIFUL PAIR OF THE RARE 5-CENT VERTICAL COIL, SCOTT 317 -- AT VF-XF 85, THIS IS THE HIGHEST GRADED AWARDED BY P.S.E. TO THIS COIL RARITY.

According to Johl, these first government coils were an experiment, and collectors and dealers were generally unaware of their existence. Regular sheets of 400 were printed and then perforated in only one direction. They were then cut into strips of 20. The strips were then hand pasted together to form rolls. As such, they are almost always strongly centered to one side. The futility of attempts to find sound and centered examples has resulted in very few even being considered for grading. The P.S.E. Population Report bears this out, especially for pairs. This is the highest graded pair or guide line pair in the P.S.E. Population Report.

With 2017 P.S.E. certificate (OGph, VF-XF 85; SMQ $17,500.00). There are no pairs or line pairs graded higher than this 85, and only one other pair has equaled this grade
