Sell now, the mint is still making them and won't run out. There are just too many for this coin to ever reach a value status, above melt. Keep one for yourself, if you like it. But for an increasing mint product buy......
You should buy the proof platinum coins, if you want long term value. They have very low mintages, and an increasing collector base.
Makes no difference to me when buying and selling. I think it would have to do with the pops of the coins, that effects the price the most. And I see many more NGC 70's then PCGS graded 70's.
Therefore, many people perceive PCGS to be stricter due to lower pops. Thus the plastic (coin) they are buying is percieved to be rarer, and commands an higher price.
Really who cares about an MS70 vs MS69. Please tell me the difference. Point it out with photos. I often times hear PCGS won't cross NGC
While I am currently number one in my mint set (1866). It matters little, my ranked position. I choose to share the coins with this site for others to enjoy the coins I own. I look at others sets, because of descriptioins and photos. Those without are just not worth perusing.
I think very few of the Number 1 sets you see truly are #1. (Except of course Bruce AKA Tradedollarnut) Afterall to be #1 you would need every pop top coin or close to it, just to say without a doubt you are the Kahuna.
I have been building this set for 19 years. I just recently got back into focusing on it, with in the last year. I am now going to be upgrading and adding. I found this forum where I could share with others, what has been a life long project.
My goal is nothing less then an xf 45 gold coin or better. As far as the rest, mostly MS, with the occasional AU. I originally wanted nothing less the AU coins, but this will be financially impossible. The price jumps are horrendous in the gold. from xf45
