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.

Coil pairs, and especially line pairs, are exceedingly difficult to find in the higher grades. So many factors can affect the condition, including placement of the guide or joint line, how the margins were stripped on the coil machine, and of course the centering within the perforations.

With 2002 P.F. and 2008 P.S.E. certificates (Superb 98; SMQ $1,950.00). This is the only example to achieve this grade to date, which is the highest awarded. Accompanied by small note from master grader William A. Litle noting "I believe the first 98NH 493LP - and close to 100NH".
