completed listings are limited to a couple of days and also limited by search terms
As for paying ebay prices... I will wait for the dust to settle. Plenty minted and the price will come down.
It sounded to me as if you didn't like the fellow's post and said it to mock him. No matter. Furthermore the question you asked "do you think proofs are junk?" IMO was more of the same. There is no yes or no answer to that question as it depends upon the coin. The party gave his opinion that he wanted to collect coins with history and events around them and clearly the ASE isn't one of those, proof or not. This isn't being a "purist" as you call it and it doesn't cost an arm and a leg either.
No mocking intended whatsoever. I guess message boards are subject to misinterpretations at times. He made a point that he meant no offense with his opinion and I made the point that I took no offense to it. In fact I said it was okay if the some people will never accept a designated hitter as real baseball. I only posed the proof question because he stated that he considered only coins intended for circulation were valid for his coin collecting standard. Did he extend that to say Morgan proofs, or Franklin proofs or any other proofs not intended for circulation? I wondered if he'd thought that all the way through or if I was trying to read too much into it. Of course you're right about there not being a right or wrong answer. My opinion?....worthless, not ASE's, not designated hitters, not classics...my opinion is
They are limited to 90 days. (Unless it has changed recently?)
How many days have these been in hand to sell?
Enough to determine there haven't been 10k on eBay already.
If you can prove such an outlandish claim, bring it.
I did a search using the most basic terms possible and only came up with 174.
Many of those weren't successful sales, or (due to basic terms) not correct items.
That's going a bit far.
That's like saying you can buy a 2006 RP now for that money.
Unless silver prices go to the moon, you won't be buying these for 5% over melt.
you left two zero's off, 500% over melt.
You got a great deal that isn't typical. A quick internet search showed most asking over $400.
"2011 silver eagle set" brings up 350 with many being 5 sets- other search terms will yield different numbers of closed auctions. 33 of the first 100 did not sell - 10 K may be optimistic between 3 or 4 K maybe
That's absurd. I'm not sure if it's bat guano or horse guano but it's definitely ... guano! The 2006 3-pc sets, closest comparison, are wholesale Bid at $315, which is about 218% over melt ($99). Five years later might add. I've been collecting for 50 years and dealing for 20. How about you?
You're out of your mind.
