The 1989 Bubble
I’ve heard stories about the prices in 1989. I was collecting coins at that time, but was just a kid and not all that in to it at that time.
I’d love to hear stories about that period from anyone who was a dealer or collector then.
I picked up this beauty on Saturday for $460:
I’m astonished at how cheap this kind of material has become lately.
Just for my curiosity I checked the historic pricing to see this particular coin peaked in 1989. I mean this price is nuts!
Did they really fetch that kind of money then???
