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.

Johl notes that the 4c coil was used primarily for mailing advertising matter and so was not widely distributed. This also meant that not many were saved, and that very few multiples were used. The rarity of a guide line pair in this condition cannot be overstated -- the guide line only occurs after every 20 stamps, making it nine times as rare as a normal pair. For a guide line pair to receive this coveted grade both stamps must have wide and even margins, which is also orders of magnitude more difficult to find than just a single or even a regular pair.

With 1986 P.F. and 2009 P.S.E. certificates (Superb 98; unpriced in SMQ above the grade of 95, SMQ $12,500.00 as 95). This is the highest grade awarded to date and the only example to achieve this grade.
