Just punch up any auction on HA or GC.
For HA, they list the hammer price and the price with the buyers premium.
$2,640 total by my calculations. But that doesn't change your explanation. Thanks for clarifying.
If you're asking which way auction houses report the sale price, it depends on the auction house. Most in US include the BP. Many outside the US list the hammer price.
Sorry about poor math skills. Brain Fart. Yes $2,640.00 is the correct price.
That's OK. If I spent $2640 on a new coin I'd probably need to let out a little steam myself.
It depends. If you're looking at your "watch list", HA shows current auctions and recently sold with the bid price and then "with BP" price in parentheses. If you're searching auction archives, it shows "sold for" price which always says "includes Buyer's Premium (BP)".
For the OP's question, it would help to know which site they're asking about.
As mentioned just remember neither of those will include taxes or shipping costs.
NO, when Heritage post a "sold for" price that includes the buyers fee. They are also selling coins that are being directly being posted on their site by collectors or dealers. The price for those coins is the asking price. That price include a percentage that Heritage will get paid by the seller not the buyer (retail price). Plus any taxes or shipping fees.
