Price History for US Scott J4 in OGnh 85 Grade
Show Grade on Graph
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 MINT NEVER-HINGED EXAMPLE OF THE 1879 5-CENT BROWN POSTAGE DUE ISSUE. THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST DIFFICULT OF ALL POSTAGE DUE STAMPS TO OBTAIN IN CENTERED, MINT NEVER-HINGED CONDITION.
A review of our computerized records shows we have only offered three other Mint N.H. stamps, only one of which could be considered Extremely Fine.
With 1983 and 1999 P.F. certificates. With 2004 P.S.E. certificate (VF-XF 85; SMQ $2,700.00). This is the highest grade awarded to date by P.S.E. to a Mint N.H. stamp, and this is the only example to achieve this grade. The SMQ value is very conservative given its rarity.
