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 1202, Lot Number 2521, 1915 Perf 10 Vertical Rotary Press Coils, Single-Line Watermark (Scott 448-449)2c Red, Ty. I, Coil (449), 2c Red, Ty. I, Coil (449)2c Red, Ty. I, Coil (449). Mint N.H., brilliant color, beautiful centering with wide margins

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB MINT NEVER-HINGED EXAMPLE OF THE 1915 2-CENT TYPE I VERTICAL COIL, SCOTT 449, GRADED XF-SUPERB 95 BY P.S.E. THIS IS THE HIGHEST GRADE AWARDED.

The 2c Type I rotary plate was used very briefly to make vertical coils issued in late 1915. It was briefly used because the Type I plate was not very deeply engraved and the curvature of the rotary press yielded impressions lacking in some of the details. The Bureau noticed this immediately, and quickly replaced it with the Type III plate (according to Scott, the EDU for No. 449 is Oct. 29, 1915 and the EDU for Type III is Dec. 21, 1915).

With 2005 (copy, for a pair) and 2010 P.S.E. certificates (XF-Superb 95; SMQ $14,000.00). This is the highest grade awarded to any unused Scott 449, and it is shared by only one other Mint N.H. single
