Granted, one seems to be a better grade. Both look cleaned to me (but I'm a novice and could be wrong about that). One sold for nearly $500 after 51 bids. The other sold for $20, BIN. I immediately went to check my Red Book to see if 1883 had a special variety which could explain why one sold for more than 20 times the other. But no. I'd love to hear from the folks here about this disparity. I don't get how the prices can be so different. What am I missing? What am I not seeing? I purposely did not identify the more expensive coin so you can be objective. I'm really looking forward to learning another new thing here. And, as always, thanks everyone. Seems like the weekends are the only time I have to ask these questions.
