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 973, Lot 62, 1875 Reprint of 1857-60 Issue3c Scarlet, Reprint (41). Without gum as issued, phenomenal centering with Jumbo margins well clear of framelines on all sides, rich color and proof-like impression

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. WITHOUT QUESTION, THE FINEST KNOWN EXAMPLE OF THE 3-CENT 1857 REPRINT. AN ASTONISHING STAMP WHICH HAS BEEN AWARDED THE GRADE OF XF-SUPERB 95 JUMBO BY P.S.E. THIS IS THE ONLY EXAMPLE OF THE 1857-60 ISSUE REPRINTS ABOVE THE ONE-CENT VALUE TO ACHIEVE THIS GRADE.

A survey of P.S.E. graded reprints of the 1857-60 Issue reveals a fact that will come as no surprise to serious students of these stamps. Sound, extremely well-centered examples are almost non-existent. Apart from the 1c value, which was issued in a quantity (3,846) approximately eight times as large as most of the other values, this stamp is the only example to grade above a 95. The 1c value has a single example graded 98J and five graded 95. Among the 479 issued of the 3c, there is one example at each grade from 90 to 95 in addition to this example. The 5c, 10c and 90c values each have a single example graded 95. It is quite likely that this is not only the finest example of the 3c, but ranks among the handful of finest extant of the entire Issue.

Only 479 sold. Ex Engel, Klein and Zoellner. With 1958, 1988 and 1998 P.F. certificates. With 2007 P.S.E. certificate (XF-Superb 95 Jumbo; SMQ does not price this stamp above a 95, $12,600 as 95)

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB EXAMPLE OF THE 3-CENT 1857 REPRINT, GRADED XF-SUPERB 95 BY P.S.E. -- EASILY ONE OF THE FINEST EXTANT.

The Continental Bank Note Company made a new plate for the 3c 1857 Reprint, consisting of 100 subjects. 10,000 stamps were printed (100 impressions). 479 of the 3c were sold, and the remaining 9,521 were destroyed on July 23, 1884, by order of the Postmaster General.

A survey of P.S.E. graded reprints of the 1857-60 Issue reveals a fact that will come as no surprise to serious students of these stamps. Sound, well-centered examples above the 1c are extremely rare. This is one of only two 3c graded 95, with only one higher at 95J. Among all the 1857-60 Reprints above the 1c (which was printed in much larger quantities) only five other stamps have graded 95 (two 5c, one 10c and two 90c).

With 2003 P.F., 2005 and 2017 P.S.E. certificates (XF-Superb 95; SMQ $15,000.00)

A review using Power Search shows that virtually all are off center to some degree, and many have perforations touching on one or more sides due to the narrow spacing on the original plate.
