What defines the best? by Matthew Healey, (full article), (video), (catalog)

Sending this again as the last email had the wrong links to the media.

In this video I am going to take off from the Matthew Healy article “What defines the best” and discuss three lots from the Rumsey sale to raise a couple questions. First, does price paid correlate with quality and additionally, does price transparency hurt auction results? The Rumsey sale has some great stamps in it. We are going to focus on three stamps that are in the Peter Iwate Collection. Each holds the record for the highest price paid. We are going to look at a number 8, 8a and 24. If you have an interest in any of these stamps, check out the article and video. By the way, the #8 is one of only two stamps with the highest grade 98 and given its scarcity and unabtrusive cancel could be without equal. Though we don't discuss lot 3012, it is worth a look as well, as it is the only #1 mint graded 98 and should rise to the top of the leader board given that the highest price paid for a mint #1 is graded 95XQ.
