It is an 1894s, and it is raw? Right there says absolutely everything. I would not even consider that date as an uncertified coin.
You can send a raw 94-S to GC and they'll take care of getting it graded and will get you the going rate for it. Super easy. Ask yourself why the seller didn't do this instead of offering it as a raw coin for what I assume is a blow-out price.
Certainly agree, but especially if an unknown seller with no past/established and personal dealings of trust/credibility with them, and also of course without a return policy. Regardless, should ask some questions about it and see how/what (and if) he answers, the way he answers or treats question(s), etc. Can tell a lot about someone that way, if maybe not quite enough to risk 3G or whatever he's asking (didn't say) on a raw coin.
And likely also one of the most widely used come-ons by nearly all unknown or questionable sellers...from an "estate sale."
The 94S is a top ten in Morgans and finding this date/mm in this condition is certainly rare. And there are alot of unknowns here. Is this an adhoc auction? or is it a private seller? or are you dealing with an auction house you have history with and know and trust? Or is this a LCS where you may have some avenue for relief if it turns out sour. All these should enter into your next move. If it is indeed authentic the price seems a bit high to me. I think grey sheet puts this at about $2k in 64.
The coin above it in my search looks like a counterfeit.
Where did you get this info?
Canyon City Coins uses that background for all of their listings. Do a little internet searching on them. They sell lots of problem coins and juice the photos to hide issues.
Anyway, buying from ebay is a toss-up until you get to know the sellers to trust.
Oh yeah, I did buy a couple of Morgans from ebay, but they were graded by PCGS.
