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 1230, Lot Number 2051, 1922 and Later Issues5c Dark Blue (557), 5c Dark Blue (557)5c Dark Blue (557). Mint N.H., huge Jumbo margins and extraordinarily well-centered, deep rich color on post-office fresh paper

EXTREMELY FINE GEM EXAMPLE OF THE 5-CENT 1922 ISSUE, GRADED SUPERB 98 JUMBO BY P.S.E. THIS STANDS ALONE AS THE HIGHEST GRADED EXAMPLE.

Advanced collectors of graded early 20th Century and of the 1922 Issue are familiar with the 5c Roosevelt stamp's status as one of the most difficult to find in the highest grades. Every stamp of the 1922 Issue except the 5c and the 9c has at least one example graded Gem 100 in Mint N.H. condition, and for the most part multiple examples at 98J. There are no 5c stamps graded Gem 100 and this is the only Mint N.H. 98J (the 9c has three 98J's).

With 2020 P.S.E. certificate (Superb 98 Jumbo; unpriced in SMQ above the grade of 98, SMQ $925.00 as 98)
