Our final three-in-one set of newsletters of the year find us with the rare coin market in a healthy place. While not everyone may agree, those who have been able to adjust to current grading standards, embrace new technologies, and have taken the time to understand the multi-tiered pricing structure that now exists have performed well. Too often our hobby is brought down by those who lament about the “good old days” without seeing the new opportunities that are out there. We will have more about the outlook for 2018 in coming weeks.
PL Morgan Dollars:
We have added Greysheet and CPG™ values for prooflike Morgan dollars to our online database. There’s no room for these in print (at this time) so visitors to our online price guide can access these at www.coinprices.com. Users of our app have access to these values as well as CDNX users on data plans.
Better date Indian cents continue to benefit from sight seen bids posted on CDN Exchange. We are seeing fewer coins sell inexpensively at auction as it seems those coins which are questionably graded are appearing less frequently.
Two Cent Pieces:
Pricing for coins in the MS64BN and MS65BN grades can now be found on our online price guide and in the CDN Pricing App. Visit www.greysheet.com/mobile-apps for details.
Standing Liberty Quarters:
This is another series where certain better dates have shown marked improvement over the last quarter.
Walking Liberty Halves:
This series show a handful of declines in the MS64 through MS66 grades this month. We eagerly anticipate the results of the upcoming major Walker collection to be sold at the FUN show which will be a test of the series.
Liberty $5 through $20:
We have added pricing for multiple additional grades for these series for the first time in print, including XF45, AU53, AU55, and MS61. We now have pricing in no less than 13 different grade levels for these types. This is especially relevant for early dates, as many coins trade in the mid-AU grades, and it is now much easier to find where a given date jumps substantially in price. This knowledge can help plan for buying decisions and forming collecting strategies. The better mint marked dates in all three of these series continue to be sought after.
