    this is a coin dealer why would he/she not send it in to be graded and then sell it? they have other graded coins up for sale so why not have this coin graded and then sell it on eBay or and auction house?

    ...because they are Great Southern...not to be too dismissive, but the actual coin might not look "exactly" like the pics

    Not to be too dismissive either, but I have heard that GSC cracks out problem and details grade coins to sell them raw. It's probably genuine, but might have something wrong with it.

    If the color is real, I say cleaned. Red usually mellows.

    Because this dealer has a habit of sell problem coins with deceptive images that hide the problems. I also note that nowhere in the auction does the seller indicate that it is RD.

    Clicked on the link to see this, since I was just curious. Turns out after 76 bids it sold for $3,300 with free shipping. I wonder if a coin like this--even if details--would still bring in more buyers if it was certified. I know many collectors would not be willing to buy any coin of this degree without certification.

    I might bring more bidders, but would it bring as much money if it was certified, and the certification was a Details slab?

    Stuff like this is why I don't buy coins off of Ebay.

    It appears slightly circulated to me. The above answers also apply. IMO, Jim

    Good point. I am not sure. Less bidders might mean a lower chance of getting someone who is willing to throw their money at it.
