Price History for US Scott 7 in OG 95 Grade
Show Grade on GraphShow all grades
Three things to keep in mind when looking at the above results (unsolds are not included):
- 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.
- When looking at multiple grades on the graph, grades with the same population numbers may show overlapping.
- 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. THIS IS WITHOUT QUESTION ONE OF THE FINEST ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLES OF THE 1851 ONE-CENT TYPE II, GRADED GEM 100 BY P.S.E. AND GEM 100 JUMBO BY THE PHILATELIC FOUNDATION. THIS IS VERY RARE AND ESPECIALLY DESIRABLE FROM PLATE 3.
With 2011 P.F. certificate (Gem 100 Jumbo). With 2016 P.S.E. certificate (OGph, Gem 100; SMQ $18,000.00 as most common plate). Among P.S.E. graded stamps from all plates, only one grades higher and two others share this grade. Scott assigns a 100% premium to No. 7 from Plate 3 versus Plates 1E and 2.
EXTREMELY FINE GEM. THIS IS WITHOUT QUESTION ONE OF THE FINEST ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLES OF THE 1851 ONE-CENT TYPE II. THIS STAMP IS GRADED GEM 100 BY BOTH THE P.F. AND P.S.E.
As the gaps between positions visible on this remarkable single demonstrate, the spacing between stamps left very little room for separation. Most examples have margins either just clear or touching, or into the design. The relative paucity of large multiples in sound condition also contributes to its scarcity with such wide margins.
With 2002 and 2006 P.F. certificates (OGph, Gem 100). With 2014 P.S.E. certificate (OGph, Gem 100; SMQ $19,000.00). Only one has graded higher and two others share this grade. This is the highest grade for an original-gum example we have offered in any of our sales.
EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 1851 ONE-CENT TYPE II, GRADED SUPERB 98 BY P.S.E.
With 2018 P.S.E. certificate (OGph, Superb 98; SMQ $9,500.00). Only four grade higher (three at 100, one at 100J which we have never offered) and two others share this desirable grade.
EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 1851 ONE-CENT TYPE II, WHICH HAS BEEN GRADED SUPERB 98 BY P.S.E.
With 2012 P.S.E. certificate (OGph, Superb 98; SMQ $9,750.00). Only three have graded higher and one other shares this desirable grade.
EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 1851 ONE-CENT TYPE II, WHICH HAS BEEN GRADED XF-SUPERB 95 BY P.S.E.
With 2005 P.S.E. certificate (XF-Superb 95; SMQ $5,000.00). Only two have graded higher to date and this is the only example to achieve this grade.
EXTREMELY FINE ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 1851 ONE-CENT TYPE II.
With 2005 P.F. and 2006 P.S.E. certificates (OGph, XF 90; SMQ $2,250.00)
EXTREMELY FINE. A CHOICE ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 1851 ONE-CENT TYPE II WITH REMARKABLY LARGE MARGINS AND EXTRAORDINARY FRESHNESS.
With 2015 P.S.E. certificate (OGh, XF 90; SMQ $2,500.00)
EXTREMELY FINE. A BEAUTIFUL LIGHTLY-HINGED EXAMPLE OF THE IMPERFORATE 1851 ONE-CENT TYPE II.
With 1980 and 1998 P.F. certificates. With 2007 P.S.E. certificate (VF-XF 85; SMQ $1,900.00). The P.S.E. grade is an enigma. In this stamp we have full margins framing the ornamentation on all sides, including the left and right sides, and there is a large top sheet margin. Considering the additional "plus" factors -- lightly-hinged gum and bright fresh color and paper -- we are at a loss to explain how this stamp could have received a grade of less than 90.
