    A buck or two. Nice raw examples can be purchased for $10.

    I have probably 40-50 in this grade and I wouldn't expect to sell any of them for more than $1-$2 like @Danomite said

    I'm in agreement. However, I think you could probably get $5.00 for it on an ebay listing with patience,,,,, or $0.99-$1.25. LOL.
    I've seen really nice MS ones go for $10-$15.

    my opinion, they are difficult enough finding to keep them and not worth the effort of selling them for a buck or two. Maybe if you had 50 like furryfrog02, it might be worth selling it as a roll of them for $100-200 or so. I dunno if there'd be any takers though, how many does a person need?

    Maybe ask $10 for a 1998 & a 2000.
    $25 to include a 1999

    I’ll correct myself.
    The 1999 WAM might be closer to $100.
    I have 2 found CRH.
    Happy me

    Yeah, no. It's more like $100-$200 in auction in Mid range MS red (62-63) higher for higher grade red of course. takes more like a 65 RB to get nearer to the $450 range.

    Coin roll finds, sell on ebay ungraded around $40-$80. Higher if it looks like possible MS, or possibility of a red designation. I'd say from sold ebay listing the average circulation find coin is more like $40-$50 price. there's only been like 20 sold listings on ebay this year, I'd say at least 5 of them are sketchy condition or pictures and probably not the 1999 Wide AM, because the reverse is clearly not the same coin, or it's so corroded it might not be wide or a 1999. I'd say ungraded, RB, likely circulated but problem free condition, it would sell for under $100 and above $50 and that's because there's so few of them up at once, but also, like all listings aren't bidding wars, it's all just one or two bids.

    there's 18 listed for sale on Ebay now, 5 of them are graded, of the other 13 raw coins I could disqualify all except one of them as either being details, or flat out misrepresented and bad pictures, or just sketchy. My opinion none will sell, and this one:

    the only one that might sell and 11 watchers are having a hard time pulling the trigger for $150.00. So not sure if they are watching to see if it sells for the info, or watching to be notified if he drops the price, but it's clearly too high I'd think because it just sits there. no zinc issues that I can see though, it's nice enough. there another one with 16 watchers, it's got zinc rot on the reverse and the guy want $360 for it. That's not selling either. Why the watchers? that's to see if it sells to anyone for sure.

    And the one PCGS MS-68 RD on there for $4500 OBO, that was sold by Legend Auctions, for $4,583 in January 2020, it's been on Ebay since. it is the top pop, finest example, but whoever bought it overpaid. MS67 Rd is like $1200.

    I don't see a quick sale on a 1999 WAM circulation find AU,RB for over $60 really and that's if it's problem free. sellers can wish and wait though...maybe the right person comes along.

    to sum up, maybe all 3 coins for close to $100.00 depends on the condition of the 3 coins. :)

    I guess I’m not in touch with values as I don’t sell.
    How would my 1999 be valued?

    the dark spots are concerning for sure. on the L in liberty, above Lincolns ear in the hair, on the reverse left of the memorial on the rim, pictures not the greatest to determine luster, or how bad those dark spots are, or grade by, but is above average circulation find, maybe AU to MS but I'd be concerned it gets "details" for corrosion, I really don't know where they draw the line from deciding to call that RB to it being "details", but clearly that would make a difference to a collector and what they would be willing to spend for it if it were put up for sale. I'd say it falls in the $50-$100 range for someone willing o take a gamble on it working out.

    That's a tough one. of course, the possibility exists that the dark areas are schmutz and staining, and the copper is intact, hard to really tell from these pictures. when I expand them it just gets blurrier. I think the one on the reverse is the scariest of them all. I think, straight graded,a buyer may pay up to $100, maybe a bit more for it from what I can tell from the pictures. if it stays ungraded, it's going to be a gamble that would hold it back to someone wanting one, especially if they have these pictures to go by, $40-$50 I think? absolutely more than a $20 without a doubt. The automatic assumption is that it's a high AU to MS details corrosion coin to a prospective buyer with pictures like this and this is why it's not in a slab, even an ANACS slab "10 for $10 each" grading special or whatever they run from time to time that shows it straight graded goes a long way for buyers of zincolns especially more expensive ones.

    If it got graded and details for corrosion, it's going to be a hard sale also, because it's a zincoln with corrosion, a person would take it out of the slab I'd think to sell it rather than leave it clearly stating there's a problem. and that goes back to the previous.

    then there's the whole thing with raw coins and people using another coins reverse to get over on someone which I mentioned in the previous post, there's some monkey business with these CAM and WAM varieties on internet sale sites that muddy the waters further with raw examples and add more uncertainty to making that purchase which holds the price down, or make buyers scary to pull the trigger.

    but this is just my personal opinion on the matter, it's not gospel and I'm not an "expert" I don't do anything coin related as a "Profession". Just constantly learning and looking as a hobby. There's a lot I don't know, and quite a few things I'm wrong about, so take my opinion for what it is, just one opinion.

    Original poster was answered and the 1999 WAM came up.

    I don't snitch on people sir :muted: I will not say who pirated the thread to a similar, but off of, original posters topic. You'll have to waterboard me!. ;)
