How much would you pay...if anything?

If you were offered a coin that you needed for your registry set, how much would you offer to pay for a coin that you judged overgraded by about a point? For the sake of argument, let's assume the coin has a value of $2000 if the grade matched the holder, and $1000 if graded correctly. The coin is attractive, just overgraded in your opinion. CAC has reviewed the coin and declined to sticker.

Or would you just pass?

    Pass. You could offer $1000, but that would be insulting and anger the seller. If you can get a good photo of it, do a gtg on the US coins forum and see how others grade it.

    I'd likely pass, as I wouldn't pay more than $1,000 for it and, if I really liked it maybe $1,500. But I probably wouldn't like it, though, as it is ovegraded. I tend to pay up for coins that are undergraded not the other way around.

    The coin in question was an auction lot at Heritage last night. Appears the bidders voted pass as well; the coin did not meet reserve.

    offer the right price then the regrade & sticker is on you. I guess if your waiting ten years vs two makes a difference as well. If you want to close out the set no harm in making an offer.

    Best place to buy !

    It would depend on population, what I had in the spot now, and what I thought the chances are I could get a similar one in next 3 years.
