There has been as usual, many auctions which have been url-ed on ebay to draw attention to a specific point or discussion as to value or lack thereof. Most often the photos are not the best. I would like to offer as a lesson in coin buying in this post. I am not the teacher, the posters will be teaching and learning at the same time.
This coin is not for sale. It is the example used.
This coin is graded, BB, or "detail" by a big 4 TPG. The photos are taken through plastic. It is not RAW.
So pretend this is the listing I have put on my auction, and then post what you think as to price and condition. After some action , I will tell you the results. AGAIN, this is a pretend auction I will not sell this coin. In financial groups it is called "paper money" so you can trade stocks on paper and not lose your money until you are ready.
Wow! High High Grade 1972/72 Die #1 Lincoln DDO. Grading is subjective. Use my photos to make your decision. Taken out of Granny's safe deposit box! Looks great to me. Buy it now for $850.00 or best offer.
The white scratches are on plastic. Ask if you need additional photos of an area.
Ok, what do you think? offer grading/ condition/ price/ suggestions
and why you say so.
It has already been to a TPG and back, so you won't offend or anything.
this is not an offer to sell, nor any offer at all, it is a pretend learning experience. A lab practical if you would.
