What is with the 1973 - S cent?
I have an unopened mint bag of 1973- San Francisco mint memorial cents and went into eBay to see what it was worth. Most 70's era unopened S wheat bags are selling for between $300 and $700, but the 73-S mint bags are listed at between $1000.00 and $2500.00.
Am I missing something? Are their DDO's or other errors that I can't find any reference too? Do I need to open the bag and search it for something? I can't figure out why they are asking such high prices for this mint bag. I know by comparison that this is a fairly low mintage, but it's still 317 Million coins. Are the sellers just hallucinating?
The Red book shows that MS 65 1973 S are worth .85 each when most 70's era cents are around .30. Why?
Can somebody enlighten me? Why is this particular year priced so high and has been for several years!
