  1. Just sent mine to PCGS for grading. Given the eBay prices looks like first batch of PCGS 70s can easily fetch $15,000+. Demand is insane for this coin.
  2. Yes - 1945 mintage is extremely low. First several 70s will fetch much higher
  3. I was stunned by recent Heritage auctions (platinum night for example brings crazy prices for British coins). I guess now people are all online... The reason they are so big is because they bring strong prices on average for sellers. For high value items (5 figures and up) Heritage usually offer no seller fees. The best deal I got before is 106% hammer but you need to have something they really want. They also promise advertisement which can be expensive. They def draw large audience. They can give you 50% estimate value as advance as well at 1% interest per month. I’ve went through almost $150k+ selling on eBay this year mostly items in 1k to 10k range and got very nice buyers on that platform. It’s not a platform for 5 figure coins clearly but you need to have your comfort zone. Don’t know why people hate it. I enjoy reading the lowball offers and you don’t need to sell anything at a price you don’t like. The fee is a lot lower at about 9% total for seller (with a store subscription). And you get money immediately. Next year there may be a 3% fee hike on numismatic items under the new managed payment structure though. Then we have the coin cabinet auctions which is quite successful in such a short period of time. Really well done. The 10% seller fee structure I’d say is closer to eBay+PayPal’s numbers and hope they can sustain that level for years to come. If you ask me as a collector I do not like to buy from dealers at all apart from very few trusted ones. I find myself turning to more and more auctions to find deals. Some of the rare US coins the dealers always tell you that you need to hold a long time to break even. Why? Cause the mark up is crazy. Very distorted market, full of bull s**t and not for the uninformed.
  4. Waited ages for this to surface... one of my fav mules of all time
  5. Want to show this amazing rarity: the George IV 1829 half sovereign mule with 1823 reverse. Ex Terner collection, PCGS PR64CAM. Only 2 are known and the other one is impounded in the Royal Mint collection. The Royal Mint actually struck 4,205 half sovereigns during 1829, but all with 1828 dies.
  6. Received this beautiful booklet today. Strongly recommended!
  7. On top of that milk spots are crazy even if one obtains a 70. Once upon a time there is a frenzy with the 2014 Britannia silver proof. Nowadays many PF70s I came across have spotted, either from NGC or PCGS. Hope it fares better for this coin but I’m skeptical.
  8. Saved and sold a lot of my other coins to get this one, and what a beauty! 1826 George IV Sovereign Proof NGC PF66UC.
  9. haha I just received the notification from APMEX and thought maybe there is a slim chance they will price it as the issue price? Open the link and immediately laughed🤑
  10. I’m amazed by the story of George III guineas. In 1761 three artists tried their best to make a nice portrait for the king who is not easily pleased. Richard Yeo’s version here (which is my favorite) is the most realistic one but not flattering to the king.
  11. Sold my una and lion 2oz gold proof coin and used the profit to buy a 1761 Yeo Pattern Guinea in recent BSJ auction. I receive the coin today and really like it!
