Dramatic price differences ?

1 post in this topic

 Why is there such a range in price when searching based on a single coin and year? Let's take an example....

1986-S 1 oz Proof Silver American Eagle (w/Box & COA)

On one site I see it listed for $72.91 and on another $51.48

Also, I know this coin is not graded and due to that, it's value will be less, but then the question becomes, what exactly would these coins typically be graded at if they were put through the process ? PR65, PR66, or maybe it's hit or miss and some might actually be PR70??

One last item as well. If we were talking about a "set", let's say just from 1986-S to 1992-S, is it really more valuable to have that full sub-set ? ie, I am able to find each of those 7 coins, buying them one at a time for a total of $360, but I saw one site selling that same set for $833! That's about a 130% markup...

Any advice/enlightenment would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance...
