  1. Thanks for your reply, but I was looking for the reason that some of the dollar coins were selling for a couple of thousand or more while the majority of listed item where what you would expect, 20-50 bucks. Another reply I received pointed out that it wasn't a defect in the higher priced coins but that they were MS 70 and the vast bulk of the pressings didn't rise to that level. I couldn't understand how the difference of one point in grading, 70 as opposed to 69 could mean that much. But in the context of the fact that there were so few that rose to that level is were the value comes from. So I will have to get my set appraised and see it I got lucky. Again, thank you for your reply, Nigel.
  2. Thank you for your very informative reply, you answered my query perfectly. I was looking at the NGC auction results and pricing. I couldn't understand why an MS69 was $35.00 or less and a 70 was a couple of thousand, saw one that sold a while ago now for $8800.00 !!!!.Thought that there was a few that had some sort of mint defect that made them so valuable. As it turns out it is the exact reverse, so few were perfect is where the inflated value comes from. And yes I will obviously have to get my set appraised by someone with the knowledge I do not have.So once again, thanks, Nigel.
  3. Hello All, Will try not to ask too many stupid questions, but some will be I am sure, as I am TOTALLY new to this. I am in the process of selling some coins and trying to determine values. I can't figure out why I am seeing some of the silver dollars issued for the 84 Olympics are selling in the thousand of dollars and complete proof sets well below that. From the little I have gleaned so far on grading and so on, I think my set is an MS70 quality, but obviously that is an unprofessional and biased assessment. But there must be some thing remarkable about some of these silver dollars, which I have been unable, at this point, to find out. Could someone give me a quick heads up on this, thanks, Nigel.
