    My guess is that someone comes in and outbids the current leader and takes the coin for $2 plus fees ($5 minimum buyer's fee).

    Have we seen this coin on CT? It sure looks familiar. It’s only worth ten cents but it will probably auction off for about $50.00.

    It's possible (although I haven't seen it before). It does look like a case of someone who didn't believe others saying it's not worth getting graded but still went ahead and sent it in.

    Why did they do it? I know! They thought that it was a mint error, probably in some exotic metal. For once a parking lot “error collector” paid for their folly instead of bedeviling us with it.

    I would bid a dime, but then, I would lose money, with the vigorish added.:)

    By the reverse my guess is the submitter was hoping it would come back as a missing clad layer.The obverse in general along with the other pinta looks tells its not and just environmental exposure.I personally would only pay ten cents:):)the hammer price?$12 the person probably spent close to $100 for certification.

    Since I have no earthy idea and I can't imagine this going for more than $100, I grabbed by 1-100 D&D dice. The dice roll says $45.

    Surely that was stuck to the bottom of the submission box. I guess $5 plus fees.

    When I checked the link, the current bid was $1.00. Can't see it going for more...second thought, can't see it going even for that.

    A new bidder might bid $2.00 right before the auction ends, but the original bidder probably thought he could outsmart any late-comers by putting in a maximum bid of $3.00. So my guess - it will go for $3.00.

    It's already at 10 times face before auction fees! Why would anyone bid on this???

    Because it’s an error and the TPG made a mistake.
