That's gotta be a bad belated April fools joke, right? Both the price and the write up. My God.

What, you think that's excessive for what is at best a $30 coin otherwise?
often the crusher of hopes and dreams

Well, when you're at the point of not being able to decide whether to admonish them for gouging, or praise them for the sheer size of the big brass balls it takes to offer them at that price, excessive seems like an understatement 🥴

Holy crap. That's asinine! A $25 coin with $1670 worth of hype. SMH.

Is there a grade breakdown of the entire bag?
When in doubt... don't.

They're selling coins simply graded "uncirculated" for only $500 a pop, so I imagine that other than the 140 graded 65 and 66, the rest got the generic uncirculated grade.

Incredible.
My brain automatically reacts by saying, "There aren't enough people who are that stupid to pay those prices."

But then it says, "Yes there are."

New definition to buying the holder and not the coin. Wonder how long it will take to hype the sale of them all.
