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 986, 1904 Louisiana Purchase Issue (Scott 323-327)5c Louisiana Purchase (326), 5c Louisiana Purchase (326)5c Louisiana Purchase (326). Mint N.H., enormous top sheet selvage with plate no. 2099, proof-like impression in intense Dark Blue shade, Jumbo margins

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SPECTACULAR EXAMPLE OF THE 5-CENT LOUISIANA PURCHASE ISSUE WHICH IS GRADED SUPERB 98 JUMBO BY P.S.E. -- THIS IS THE HIGHEST GRADE AWARDED AND IT IS SHARED BY NO OTHERS.

According to Johl (Volume 1), the Louisiana Purchase stamps were not popular with the public or collectors when they were issued -- due to their larger size and unfavorable comparisons to the designs of the previous 1901 Pan-American stamps. As a result, fewer were saved.

Ex Whitman. With 1995 P.F. certificate for a block. With 1997 and 2008 P.S.E. certificates (Superb 98 Jumbo; SMQ $7,500.00). This is the only 5c Louisiana Purchase stamp to have achieved this grade in the P.S.E. Population Report, with none higher. The SMQ value is far too low for a unique population report number such as this -- it realized $16,000 hammer in our Whitman sale. Scott Retail $200.00
