    I finally found a 1998 red wide AM coin today. The only thing wrong with it is some unfortunate water marks, or whatever you call them. I'm sure one of the grading companies could restore it.
    So I looked up what price it's going for, I thought these AM errors would go for more. My question: should I let them restore and slab the coin and hope the price will go up later on?

    I don't think the price will ever go up. I mean maybe when we're all dead and gone it will be worth more but not in my lifetime. ;) And just so you know if I'm lucky, I'll live for another 30 years. :D Better luck next time but I have experience with errors and they only sell to specific collectors and it has to be a really noticeable error like a nickel on a dime planchet or something similar. :cigar:

    Yes, that's what I did. Maybe price will go up on AMs later on down the road. I found another coin, I'll create a new thread. I'd appreciate your input. I'll post it next 5 minutes.

    The 99 is the valuable one. If it was high grade I'd get it graded. But even MS66 RD they're not a lot. You'd need it to get to 67. That's cool you found one though. I've been looking for years and never have found one.
