    Why didn't it get a gold bean?

    That has got to be the most ridiculous thing I will see all day; unless I look too closely at the paint job I'm doing in our laundry room today.

    Totally worth it. That will definitely help sell it at a higher price than without.

    @Kasia. I'm asking if your post was in jest or if you meant what you said?

    Could be both, yet I really do think this will help inflate the price if someone who truly wants a certain look to their Low Ball collection wants it. I mean, why not? It clearly shows that it is not even able to be marked as a P02.

    Many P01 coins are desirable. I think if I had a really nice P01 and wanted to sell it, it would be worth the effort to CAC it, and preferentially have a green bean instead of a gold bean.

    On second though, perhaps a gold bean would get a higher price on this. Rarity factor, I'm sure.

    Why a bean on a coin like this would bring more money is ridiculous.

    Yeah, to you and me. It's not ridiculous to a collector who competes in a lowball registry though. I'm not a lowball collector, but do have one P01 seated liberty half, which along with my MS70 ASE, I use to show non-collectors the extremes.

    So, what would a gold bean mean on a coin like this? A grade of 00 or a grade of 02? o_O

    I was thinking the same thing.

    Are there any other collectables where the worse condition one can be more valuable than a better one? Antiques, cars, motorcycles, guns,......etc. No wonder coin collectors get little respect from public :)

    A CAC sticker does not modify the grade. It simply means that within a grade, in this case P01, the coin is a better representation next to other P01s. I have seen lowball coins and, in my opinion, some are more appealing or desirable than others, in which case a CAC sticker would be appropriate.

    The $850 price guide is a different story. For a lowball collector, I am sure there is a premium he is willing to pay, but $850? I haven't landed on a price but I would be south of $150 on this coin.

    Well, there are lowball registry sets for currency. Don't know about sports cards, comics, stamps, etc. My 1993 Geo Prism might qualify in the automobile category though. :)

    Wouldn't a gold bean mean that it "might" be in "danger" of going F02?

    Guitars. Scratches and suffs on the back of a guitar from, say Slash's belt buckle make it worth more than an identical model in pristine condition. Just sayin.

    I don’t understand lowball collecting I wouldn’t give a buck for that coin, sticker or not.

    I agree. I would rather spend my money on a "nice" looking coin. Of course beauty is in the eye of the be"holder", bean or no bean.
