@StacyK, did the dealer make that offer before sending them off for authentication, or is that what he's offering now that they're back? There are so many counterfeits of these coins that I imagine some dealers assume the worst when they come in, and make an offer based solely on their gold value. But if he's offering that little now that they're slabbed, he's not respectable. I'm a bit torn about the grading fees. On the one hand, it seems fair to compensate him if you aren't going to sell them to him. On the other hand, it doesn't sound like he made that a precondition for sending them in, and if he's super-lowballing you, fairness is already out the window.
