Meow is thinking it would be better if it was blast white. But a lot of nickels seem to turn golden after a while.
@MeowtheKitty . I have one's that are golden but I like yours better !
I think $10.00 would be more reasonable.
But remember, I am not a coin grader or appraiser.
That's not a realistic price at all for a 66 FS. $50 was perfectly fair for that if not a slightly good deal for him as a number of them have gone for more
Very nice. A quintessential nickel, if you're a collector. I had one, and now can't find. So I'm not a collector, lol.
Meow asked for opinions and I gave mine, and now, so have you.
Please refer back to my statement that I am neither a grader nor an appraiser.
Also, I am not a nickel collector.
As we all, including Meow, know, we should buy what pleases ourselves, and if we're happy with the price paid, then that's fine, but it appears that, with his question, Meow is looking for reassurance that he got a good deal and/or paid a fair price.
Bball, I think you gave him that reassurance.
BTW, I think you took my reply out of context. It was simply a singular opinion.
If I were buying the coin, I would rather give closer to $10.00 for it.
You gave 3 opinions in one answer :
"$50 was perfectly fair for that" , "a slightly good deal for him" , "a number of them have gone for more".
We all have opinions and I'm sure Meow appreciates and understands all of them.
The thing is though, market rates aren't really an opinion for something like that. Whats the best designs, favorite series, what do you like best etc absolutely opinions all day long. Thing is though there's fairly standard ranges or at least floors that very quick research will show.
If you would like a very quick reference tool for pricing the link below captures prices from many auction sites and can be sorted in a variety of ways.
Of course we would all love to be able to buy everything for a fraction of its consistent prices
Those aren't opinions those are market facts for $50 was fair and a number of them have gone for more. You could argue slightly good deal was an opinion but at worst it was one supported by past sales
And its really not helpful to answering the question just throwing out numbers. Those questions are answered with market rates
Thanks for the link.
Greysheet says $70 for an MS66/FS.
Don't know if that includes the NGC 5FS or not.
Does it have to be 6FS?
NGC and PCGS do not recognize steps the same. When talking about FS a NGC graded coin will always be graded tougher.
I have the same question on valuation. I paid $25 shipped. Bought it because:
I have become enamored of late with the Schlag design Jefferson's by Ron Landis.
This is my birth year.
I am a lousy photographer but I can tell you this. The steps are full, but the details in Montecello and on the obverse look like the dies were overpolished. It there such a thing as a "late die state" proof?
Do folks value those more than modern ones?
