That's one I need but have been unable to justify the asking price. Still, one will come in at the right price one day.
I was able to get one for $360. It is a lot but quite a bit less than they're going for on eBay.
$40 for a coin which is literally impossible to identify until you see the MintMark.
Don't get me wrong, I enjoy this entire collection but it seems that they get more and more expensive as each year passes.
In 2006, Silver was about $12 an ounce and the 2006-W coin only cost $19.95
In 2007, Silver was about $15 an ounce and the price went up to $21.95
In 2008, Silver was about $20 an ounce and the price jumped to $25.95
Today, Silver is struggling at $17 an ounce yet the coin is priced at $39.95? I've never felt more like a worm on a hook than when I think about this price.
Now, what REALLY hurts is when your subscription is processed for 10 coins at $60.95 per coin and then later in the year, the US Mint drops the price to $55.95 or $44.95 for the same exact coin.
That was the year I lowered my Subscription from 10 coins to only 3.
have to get one of these Burnished Eagles each year. Same with the Zombucks™. And Silver Proof State Quarter sets.
Well, despite our differences in the past, we seem to have similar annual objectives!
I used to buy into the Silver Quarters but dropped that in 2010.
I still buy into the Silver Proof Set. I'm not sure why, but I've got them on subscription and don't plan to end it.
I am convinced we never had any differences. Tone is lost on the internet and will probably contribute to WW3.
On the matter of my annuals, it is funny, those things I listed are complete outliers to what I consider my "collection" but I feel compelled to buy the every year (and quarterly on the Zombucks™)
Nice to know I wasn't the only one burnt that year.........
I was upset since that was the very first year that they started messing with the prices. Either Up or Down.
