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. A SUPERB MINT NEVER-HINGED JOINT LINE PAIR OF THE 1916 3-CENT COIL, SCOTT 456, WHICH IS GRADED XF-SUPERB 95 BY P.S.E. THIS IS THE HIGHEST GRADE AWARDED AND THE ONLY EXAMPLE TO ACHIEVE IT.

Scott 456 was the first 3c stamp to be printed on the Stickney rotary printing press. It was current for a little over a year. The joint line occurred after every 17 stamps, so is considerably scarcer and more difficult to obtain in higher grades than a normal pair.

With 2010 P.S.E. certificate (XF-Superb 95; SMQ $8,500.00). This is the highest grade awarded and the only example to achieve this grade.
