Price History for Scott O70 in OG 80 Grade
Show Grade on GraphShow all grades
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 GEM. UNDOUBTEDLY ONE OF THE FINEST ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLES OF THE $10.00 STATE DEPARTMENT ISSUE IN EXISTENCE.
The large format State Department dollar values are notorious for poor centering. Even well-centered stamps have slightly skewed vertical perforations which angle in toward the design at one spot or another. This stamp is perfectly "boxed" at all corners. We really see nothing to have justified anything less than a 95 grade, but we defer to the P.S.E. In any case, the other two OG stamps in the P.S.E. Population Report are graded 50 and 75!
With 2008 P.S.E. certificate (XF-Superb 90; SMQ $12,400.00)
VERY FINE ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE $10.00 STATE DEPARTMENT.
With 1992 and 2004 P.F. certificates and a 2007 P.S.E. certificate (F-VF 75; SMQ $3,800.00)
