Hello all, and good afternoon! Today I had a major numismatic success that I just HAD to share with you all. As some of you know, I mainly stay away from purchasing coins off of eBay, but covid has made new numismatic acquisitions nearly impossible for me. Today I was scrolling eBay for pre-NGC graded coins that I can reference with the NGC price guide to potentially resell and gain profit to later spend on future numismatic purchases. A certain 1964 dime caught my eye that the NGC graded at PFCA 69. I saw the sellers asking price, and nearly fell out of my chair. He wanted about $40 for the coin, but I could swear it was worth well over $100. I checked the price guide, and sure enough, NGC valued the coin at $140. I instantly checked to make sure the seller accepted returns, and read through his customer feedback. It all came back clear, and I bought the coin. I anxiously await its arrival so I can make sure everything is legit. Perhaps he meant to set it at auction, or maybe left out a digit? haha! Thank you all for reading! Cheers, NM25 days ago

That's cool... what are you basing the price on? Grey sheet, blue sheet or pcgs?25 days ago
NGC's price guide.25 days ago
PCGS is a bit too liberal with their grading for me. I tend to stick with NGC for most everything.25 days ago
Not to rain on your parade, but if you were to resell it on ebay it won't make much profit. I found multiple other listings on ebay of the same coin and grade that are being offered at $50. NGC tends to overprice coins, so I usually check what they are selling for on ebay. Dealers usually buy coins based off of the PCGS price guide, so that might be worth a look. Either way, a great coin!25 days ago

I think you are mistaken. I just checked eBay, and only found one other identical coin. It was listed at $170. Keep in mind, it is a Cameo Proof, and the only 1964 proof coins im seeing for $50 are not. Thanks for the info!
