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 1034, Lot Number 91, 1867-68 Grilled Issue (Scott 79-101)3c Rose, C. Grill (83), 3c Rose, C. Grill (83)3c Rose, C. Grill (83). Rich color and detailed impression on bright paper, clearly-defined grill, wide and balanced margins, neat strike of quartered cork cancel

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB USED EXAMPLE OF THE 1867 3-CENT C GRILL IN THE FINEST CONDITION ATTAINABLE. A REMARKABLE STAMP IN EVERY RESPECT.

The 3c is the only denomination that comes with the distinctive C Grill, with the grill points facing up instead of down. Like the all-over A Grill this is classified as an experimental grill and saw limited production and use (probably in late 1867) just after the A Grill experiment and prior to the more widespread use of other grills in early 1868. The 3c B Grill, Scott 82, is only known from a cover dated Feb. 17, 1869, and was probably produced much later than the C Grill.

With 2002 P.S.E. certificate (XF-Superb 95; SMQ $9,600.00). This is the highest grade awarded and the only to achieve it.
