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 978, Lot Number 1141, Newspapers and Periodicals12c Pale Rose, 1875 Special Printing (PR40), 12c Pale Rose, 1875 Special Printing (PR40)12c Pale Rose, 1875 Special Printing (PR40). Without gum as issued, beautifully centered with Jumbo margins, vivid color on fresh paper

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB EXAMPLE OF THE 12-CENT 1875 NEWSPAPER SPECIAL PRINTING, GRADED XF-SUPERB 95 JUMBO BY P.S.E. -- THIS IS THE ONLY EXAMPLE TO ACHIEVE THIS GRADE TO DATE.

P.S.E. encapsulated (XF-Superb 95 Jumbo; unpriced in SMQ above the grade of 95, SMQ $4,050.00 as 95). This is the highest grade awarded to date in the P.S.E. Population Report and no others share this grade. There are only 32 1875 Newspaper Special Printings in the P.S.E. Population Report from the 2c to $1.92 with some values yet to appear in the census. We view this as a small number, most likely due to the great difficulty in finding stamps that would receive a reasonably high grade, since the vast majority has centering or perforation problems, and sometimes both.

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. EASILY ONE OF THE FINEST QUALITY NEWSPAPER SPECIAL PRINTINGS TO HAVE SURVIVED AND A GREAT CONDITION RARITY.

With 2008 P.S.E. certificate (XF-Superb 95; $4,500.00). According to the P.S.E. Population Report only one other shares this grade with just one higher. There are only 31 Newspaper Special Printings in the P.S.E. Population Report from the 2c to $1.92 with some values yet to appear in the census. We view this as a small number, most likely due to the great difficulty in finding stamps that would receive reasonably high grade since the vast majority of those with ungraded certificates have centering or perforation problems, and sometimes both
