So what is the general selling value of PROOF ASE's sold privately?

This I haven't explored before, but I may sell the 16 I have. From what I've seen, this resale market varies wildly in price, and I'll be doing private selling.

    Same as if you sold them personally

    If shipping them, selling them as a lot will save you postage.

    Edited to add: Now that you have added "PROOF" to the title you should get an avg. of $40 - 45.

    Gold is the money of kings. Silver is the money of gentlemen. Barter is the money of peasants. And debt is the money of slaves.

    Good comments!
    I didn't see any significant price difference in the common ones. I may do my little trick of asking $39 if they buy all.

    just looking back on 2018 ebay purchases on ASE 12 Proofs $275.50 my average $23

    At present ASE proof prices are way down so don't sell them unless you have to have cash immediately.

    If you must have the cash now see "Mesh's" post above. Sounds like a net of $23/ea!

    Proof ASE aren't nearly what they used to be. Some market maker out in California collapsed maybe two years ago. The former market maker wasn't exactly running an honest business.

    When Philip Diehl screwed loyal ASE collectors by bundling the 1995W into the AGE set so that it would've required a $1,000 outlay to get one (or $15,000 to get 15), I stopped buying 15 ASE proofs every year. I was so pissed at that guy. Over the years, I sold off about 145 Proof ASEs gradually but kept the 6 coins I thought might be worth something - 3 of the 1993s and 3 of the 1994s.

    In 2006, I joined PCGS and decided to send them in for grading, because I thought I had carefully tagged all the best coins by re-evaluating each of them carefully from time to time over the years. Only one of them, a 1993 came back PR-70. I sold it for $4,900 on ebay. All the rest of those coins sold for nominal prices that were pretty comparable to today's prices.

    The one ASE I regret selling was a 1988 Proof which had started to gather up a really delicate and pretty purple highlight from it's purple box. I should've kept it. It was a pretty coin and if I'd kept it, I would have eventually had it graded.

    The moral of the story - if you are selling make sure that you look the coins over carefully and make sure that you aren't overlooking a real keeper.

    Proof ASE's will usually sell fairly well....I really should pull mine out and see if some should be slabbed...like the '93.... They are nice coins... but the issue price is what hurts when selling most of them... Cheers, RickO

  • tneigtneig Posts: 1,449 ✭✭✭

    Thanks. I have one 93 so that's nice. I'll look at them close.
