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.

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. THIS MAGNIFICENT MINT NEVER-HINGED EXAMPLE OF THE 1915 50-CENT PERF 10 SINGLE-LINE WATERMARKED FRANKLIN ISSUE IS GRADED GEM 100 BY P.S.E. -- THIS IS THE HIGHEST GRADE AWARDED AND THE ONLY EXAMPLE TO ACHIEVE THIS REMARKABLE GRADE.

According to Johl, this stamp was current for only a little over a year. Dealers at the time, who were already loaded to financial capacity, did not stock up on this stamp while it was current, probably due to its high face value, so less are available to collectors.

With 2008 P.S.E. certificate (Gem 100; SMQ $27,500.00). This is the highest grade awarded and no others share this grade. The next-highest grade is 98.
