1878 VAM 141 PCGS 66

Post by collectinsince65 » Sat Jun 22, 2019 3:24 pm

Hey all
Looked at PCGS and Heritage for an idea on value.
Came up empty.
Who's in the know?
Thank you
Mike

I have no sales for VAM 117 in such a high grade. The highest grade PCGS has attributed is MS64. Are you certain your coin is a 117?

Maximum value will come if it's attributed on the holder by PCGS, then a short list of potential buyers comes to my mind. My WAG value is $5,000 to $8,000.
When in doubt... don't.

Being a 141 changes things, since PCGS has graded one of those in 66, and 9 in 65. But a 7TF R78 in 66 is a rare and valuable ($3,000 Greysheet) coin to start with. PCGS doesn't show any sales records for its one MS66 VAM 141, so we still have to guess about value.

The last MS65 VAM 141 that Heritage sold (Feb. 2019) went for roughly double generic MS65 price. But being a $3,000 coin to start with, I don't think an MS66 example would bring double sheet price. I'm going to be conservative and guess $4,500 to $5,000.
When in doubt... don't.

Correctly attributed as 141 not 117
