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 1156, Lot 3596, 1913-15 Washington-Franklin Issues (Scott 424-440)3c Deep Violet, Pink Back (426 var). Mint N.H., rich color on bright paper, unmistakable "Pink Back" variety

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. AN ABSOLUTELY STUNNING MINT NEVER-HINGED EXAMPLE OF THE 1914 3-CENT WASHINGTON WITH THE "PINK BACK" VARIETY. THIS STAMP IS GRADED GEM 100 JUMBO BY P.S.E. -- THIS IS THE HIGHEST GRADE POSSIBLE AND THE ONLY EXAMPLE TO ACHIEVE IT.

According to Scott Catalogue, the aniline inks used on some printings of Scott 425, 426 and 435a caused a pink tinge to permeate the paper and appear on the back.

With 2013 P.S.E. certificate (Gem 100 Jumbo; unpriced in this grade in SMQ; SMQ $2,750.00 as 100 with no premium for the variety). This is the highest grade awarded to a Scott 426 and no others share it. The highest grade we have offered in one of our auctions is a 98
