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 Number 1150, Lot Number 984, 1904 Louisiana Purchase Issue (Scott 323-327)2c Louisiana Purchase (324), 2c Louisiana Purchase (324)2c Louisiana Purchase (324). Mint N.H., vivid color on post-office fresh paper, mathematically perfect centering with wide margins, exceptionally fresh

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. THIS SUPERB MINT NEVER-HINGED EXAMPLE OF THE 2-CENT LOUISIANA PURCHASE ISSUE HAS ACHIEVED THE PERFECT GRADE OF GEM 100. THIS IS THE ONLY EXAMPLE TO ACHIEVE THIS GRADE, WHICH IS THE HIGHEST GRADE AWARDED.

Among the entire Louisiana Purchase Issue, only four Mint N.H. stamps are graded Gem 100 -- the 1c offered in the previous lot, the 2c offered here and two of the 10c.

With 2008 P.S.E. certificate (Gem 100; SMQ $3,000.00). This is the only example to achieve this exalted grade with none higher. The SMQ value is absurdly low -- only 50% more than a 98 grade in SMQ for a population of six. This unique Gem 100 is therefore six-times as rare as the stamps graded 98 -- it last sold for $21,000 hammer in a 2008 auction. Scott Retail $65.00

Sale Number 992, Lot Number 2418, 1904 Louisiana Purchase, Jamestown Issues (Scott 323-330)2c Louisiana Purchase (324), 2c Louisiana Purchase (324)2c Louisiana Purchase (324). Mint N.H., with bottom imprint in selvage, the centering is perfect and the margin width is balanced and well beyond the standard dimensions of this tightly-spaced issue, bright color, fresh paper and gum

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. ABSOLUTELY REMARKABLE QUALITY FOR THIS 20TH CENTURY COMMEMORATIVE ISSUE. A MAGNIFICENT STAMP.

The 2c Louisiana Purchase is a common stamp, but the difficulty in finding choice Mint N.H. examples is evident in the P.S.E. Population Report statistics: 114 have been graded, but only five have graded 98 or better (four 98's, one 100). Another "rule" of this issue is that the stamps have small margins due to the tight spacing between subjects on the plate. This, too, is evident in the Population Report stats: there are no Jumbos in OG 95, 98 or 100 grades, and, in fact, only two stamps have the Jumbo designation (one NH 90J and one used 98J). For the collector who seeks an extraordinary example of each stamp, this 2c Louisiana Purchase, with its imprint selvage and 98 grade, is a major rarity, which is not an overstatement considering that we have sold only one other Mint N.H. 98 example.

With 2009 P.S.E. certificate (Superb 98; SMQ $2,350.00). One of four graded 98 and only one graded higher at 100.
