How much is it?

6 posts in this topic

I wonder how people name price on coins whitch are rare, but not popular.

1848-O small O half dime

This coin is rare, but not many people collect half dimes.

You can't use CDN, Heritage auction archive to name the price.

I won't be surprised if the hammer price on this coin went below $5K, but on the other hand, I won't be surprised if it fetched more than $10K if two rich people wanted this coin badly.

Is there any way to know the proper amount of money to pay for such coins? confused.gif

One way to track prices for rare Seated Liberty varieties is to check the prices realized in auction sales. Another positive step would be to join the Liberty Seated Collectors Club. Its journal includes ads from specialists in these series, and they're more likely than general dealers to have the rare varieties for sale.

 

I've been a member since 1979, and this club remains among the better values in speciality organizations. Dues are $15/year. Write to LSCC Treasurer Mark Sheldon at POB 261, Wellington, OH 44090.

I have checked previous archive of B&M and Heritage sale, but couldn't find this variety in mint state. It may be an unique one in mint state.

If you emailed Dr. McClosky, then you can forget about a reply. To apply for membership, you must write to the Treasurer of the Club, Mark Sheldon.
