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 989, Lot Number 102, 1867-68 Grilled Issue and 1875 Re-Issue 1c Blue, E. Grill (86), 1c Blue, E. Grill (86)1c Blue, E. Grill (86). Original gum, lightly hinged at top, deep rich color and proof-like impression on fresh paper, clearly-defined grill points, unusually choice centering

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. THE 1868 ONE-CENT E GRILL IS FAR SCARCER THAN ITS F-GRILL COUNTERPART, PARTICULARLY IN SUCH CHOICE ORIGINAL-GUM CONDITION.

Some time ago we observed that the 1c E Grill appeared at auction very infrequently, in any form. After analyzing the early 1868 regular-production grills (Z, D, E and F), we concluded that grilling of the 1c 1861 issue with the E (and Z) Grill must have been short-lived, occurring sometime around February 28, 1868. Later grilling of 1c stamps was probably done with the F Grill. Relatively little of the 1c E Grill supply appears to have reached the philatelic market, as evidenced by the stamp's scarcity.

Ex Odeneal. With 1994 P.F. and 2007 P.S.E. certificates (OGh, XF 90; SMQ $9,250.00). This is the highest grade awarded by P.S.E., and the SMQ does not price this in any higher grades.
