  1. Not going to be PVC as it looks like original capsule prooflike dollar which (as mine is holdered) cannot be opened.
  2. Sorry Roger the nose is not right for Trumpio
  3. One pricing methodology I know of could be beneficial to some of you. You could track coins I buy and note the down arrows in nearly every coin I recently purchased.
  4. Yes I took advantage myself. If anything I need some reholdering done and maybe a couple shots at Star
  5. I understand that if Great Collections sold a coin with a price over 1k there would be no seller commission taken. At Heritage those fees are collected on the buyer and the seller, so what do you think their commissions would be ?
  6. Do you think it is telling that when money was backed by real gold and silver the ratio was 20 or 30 to one ? Compared to today when it is unclear how much gold (or silver) is still ours, at 100 to one you would think silver is a good buy. Boy how wrong I was !
  7. I think it is just a matter of priority for updating price guides. I don't really see the point to price guide maintenance since it's already done by many other group thinkers. I recently requested registry review for a couple dates in a set and it took 6 weeks to confirm info that has been known for decades. But guess what - they got 'er done for me ! I just don't see price guide maintenance to be a money maker. Can someone demonstrate that I am wrong ?
  8. I think it is not only fair for Heritage to comment but necessary because they provide the venue for this sale as well as taking a commission. I've consigned material with dealers before and have been told my price was too high and would not list them as such. Don't forget Heritage stands to make 20k or more knowing full well they have already profited from the sale of this same coin in the past !
  9. Auction prices are only guides and show typical prices realized for typical coins offered for sale. Outstanding coins often don't make it to auction because collectors realize that they need to pay up for the better material. This is why CDN prices are often only relevant to dealers. When I see knockout coins I need, I am willing to pay what it takes to obtain them.
  10. It's still the same coin and I'll bet the next time it changes hands it doesn't bring half
  11. Disgrace is a fitting description of any dictatorship in today's society. Also how about evil, dehumanizing, immoral and never-to-be-trusted.
  12. Now that we know past auction history, who I wonder set this asking price ?
  13. Yes I too believe that very few collectors will pay premiums for die varieties or die pair designation on Franklins. That said I thought it interesting that my coin has a die pair designation from an expert 15 years ago.
  14. Definitely looks like a proof judging by the rims. Have never heard of this coins' existence but looking at the coin number I see it was graded in the last few years.
  15. Here is an earlier purchase from 2005. Rick used to issue RT letters with most purchases and my letter shows this one to be from die 5 (a top die from this year). So while I paid top dollar for this one I feel like I was lucky to get one that later got a CAC veriication. Also I think these die varieties will be market accepted simply because no mint record of dies used have yet been found or published. It's also noteworthy that these few die pairs struck far to many coins in 1950 and little if any repolishing was done resulting in many coins not looking like proofs let alone deep mirrored cameo proofs. Incidentally there are some 1950 cameos with deeper mirrors and more contrast in Pf 65 Cameo that sell for 3 to 5 thousand dollars. This one not quite that much.
