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.

Mint N.H. with plate no. 1776 and wide selvage at top, brilliant color and proof-like impression on bright paper, mathematically perfect centering with unusually wide margins on all sides

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. THIS MAGNIFICENT MINT NEVER-HINGED EXAMPLE OF THE 1902 SERIES SPECIAL DELIVERY STAMP, SCOTT E6, HAS BEEN AWARDED THE PERFECT GRADE OF GEM 100 BY P.S.E. -- THIS STANDS ALONE AS THE HIGHEST GRADE AWARDED.

Scott E6 is the first of the "Messenger on Bicycle" Special Delivery designs. It was released as part of the Bureau of Engraving and Printing's "Series of 1902" regular postage issues (Scott 300-313). Scott E6 is printed on double-line "USPS" watermarked paper with 12-gauge perforations. In 1908 the "Helmut of Mercury" Special Delivery stamp was issued. However, the Messenger on Bicycle design was re-issued in 1909 from new plates, and the same basic design was issued continuously until the Motorcycle Delivery design replaced it in 1922. Changes in the paper and perforation gauge for the issues from 1909 until 1922 mirror the changes in the Washington-Franklin series of the same period.

Scott E6 is not particularly scarce (it has a Scott value of $525.00 as Mint N.H.), but experienced collectors and professionals know that very few examples of the 1902 Issue exist with wide and balanced margins. The P.S.E. Population Report statistics support this statement, and a review of our auction records with Power Search provides visual confirmation. None of the stamps (singles or in blocks) in our database compare to this Mint N.H. Gem 100 example.

With 2009 P.S.E. certificate (Gem 100; SMQ $17,800.00). This is the highest grade awarded and the only example to achieve this desirable grade. One has been graded Superb 98, and four have graded 95, a statistic that has not changed in the past four years.

EXTREMELY FINE. THIS GORGEOUS MINT NEVER-HINGED EXAMPLE OF SCOTT E6 STANDS ALONE AS THE HIGHEST-RATED EXAMPLE CERTIFIED TO DATE BY PROFESSIONAL STAMP EXPERTS.

It is extremely rare to find the 1902 Special Delivery with such large margins. The plate layout placed the stamps closely together. The Bureau of Engraving and Printing rectified this problem with the 1911 printing of Scott No. E8, when they created a new plate on which the stamps were spaced further apart.

With 1984 and 1999 P.F. certificates. With 2004 P.S.E. certificate (XF 90 Jumbo; SMQ $750.00 as 90, $1,450.00 as 95)
