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 USED EXAMPLE OF THE ONE-CENT ROTARY COIL WASTE ISSUE, SCOTT 545, WHICH HAS BEEN GRADED XF-SUPERB 95 BY P.S.E. -- THIS IS THE HIGHEST GRADE AWARDED TO DATE.

By their very nature, rotary press waste stamps are extremely difficult to obtain with such choice centering. The production process was far less precise, resulting in many off-center stamps. This issue was perforated in both directions on the flat plate perforating machine, which was set for a slightly different size of stamp, resulting in poor centering for the issue. The rotary press sheets also had a natural tendency to curl, making accurate perforating very difficult.

With 1991 P.F. and 2009 P.S.E. certificates (XF-Superb 95; SMQ $960.00). This is the highest grade awarded to date and only one other shares this grade.
