Therefore it can't account for recent changes.
Auction results are the most accurate thermometer for coin values.
If the coin has reasonable value (>$200) check auction results in Great Collections and Heritage.
If it's less expensive see what it's selling for in eBay.
Welcome to CT BTW.
This..... The Redbook is a price guide only. It’s real use of a Redbook is in the information it contains.
Thanks Randy. I obviously forgot to add that information.
If you look at sold auctions on ebay for a specific graded coin you'll find that the price varies even in a short amount of time even for the same graded coin. Plus we don't know if they average their prices .. from ebay .. or heritage, PCGS, some retail store in New York or LA ... or where ??
I've never seen the Redbook specify a grading company in their price listings. I don't think I've ever seen them say that the prices listed are for TPG certified coins. (Of course my Redbook is from 2014.)
The same applies for medieval and ancient coins. Some the price guides have not been updated in years. You have to look at the auction results and also judge coins by their popularity among collectors.
I never could find that cpg app, but I do have the PCGS price guide and also the NGC price guide and I check HA and great collection for prices.
Yes, they tend to run very high in hopes of pumping up the market. That's why dealers who try to get prices that are much higher than the PCGS and NGC guidlines for run of mill material, need to hear the word "No" more often. Believe it or not, they are out there.
Yeah, I think that's where I got the $15,000 price for an AU58 1907 HR Saint. The auction results are WAY LOWER for all AU-58's.
And at the Garden State Coin Show over the weekend, so many times I asked for a price -- ballpark would have done -- and dealers said to their assistants to look it up.....ON EBAY !!!
