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 1138, Lot Number 1596, 1912-23 Issues (Scott 426-440)12c Claret Brown (435), 12c Claret Brown (435)12c Claret Brown (435). Mint N.H., deep rich color and proof-like impression, perfectly centered with Jumbo margins

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. THIS PHENOMENAL STAMP HAS BEEN GRADED GEM 100 JUMBO BY P.S.E. -- THIS IS THE HIGHEST GRADE POSSIBLE ON THE GRADING CHART AND NO OTHERS SHARE IT.

According to Johl, in 1914 the Bureau of Engraving and Printing had difficulty securing proper inks, and the red which was used as the basic color for the 12c (and also the 2c) was the most difficult to obtain. In August 1914 World War I was just getting under way, and Great Britain allowed all dies and chemicals not manufactured domestically for printing U.S. stamps to be shipped from Germany. The Copper Red shade (Scott 435a) was from the earlier printing before the inks were received.

With 2008 P.S.E. certificate (Gem 100 Jumbo; unpriced in SMQ above the grade of 100, SMQ $3,500.00 as 100). This is the highest grade possible on the grading chart and the only example to achieve it.
