I sold a lower grade, XF raw on the bay a few weeks ago. It went for $104. I sold a PCGS XF40 for $225 last month.

Thank you Kenny and Jason for your feedback. I think I need more experience in spotting a coin that has been cleaned. Not easy when buying off the Baye tho, depending in quality of photo's. Thanks all.

Appreciate hearing this information, too.

So there is a nice premium on this as the Grey Sheet lists an 88S XF40 at around $160?

I have an ANACS45 in hand and had little idea how much it'd be worth. Similar here to other coins: ANACS seems to be valued a bit lower than, say, PCGS and/or NGC - or is this not the case for all coins?

I know: the coin is only as valuable as someone else is willing to pay...

Thanks,

Gary

Thanks Gary, your information is appreciated. Like you say, it's all about who's bidding on the day and what kind of mood the bidder is in.
