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 1032, Lot Number 3129, 1861-66 Issue (Scott 68-78b)24c Pale Gray Violet, Thin Paper (70d), 24c Pale Gray Violet, Thin Paper (70d)24c Pale Gray Violet, Thin Paper (70d). Remarkably choice centering for this difficult issue, intense shade on fresh paper, neat strike of grid cancel

EXTREMELY FINE. AN OUTSTANDING USED EXAMPLE OF THE 1861 24-CENT IN THE PALE GRAY VIOLET COLOR.

The 24c Pale Gray Violet shade, Scott 70d, comes from an early 1861 printing on thin paper, a characteristic shared by the Violet and Steel Blue stamps. Scott 70d's rarity has been more widely recognized in recent years -- we have only sold two with original gum since keeping computerized records, and we have sold very few sound used copies in Extremely Fine condition.

With 2006 P.F. (XF 90) and 2008 P.S.E. certificates (XF 90; SMQ $5,350.00). Only one example has achieved this grade and only one has graded higher (at 95)
