MS-63 High Relief Saint
Was anyone else watching this rather short duration listing for a PCGS graded MS-63 1907 High Relief Saint?
When I saw the listing on January 26th I scanned the seller's feedback which was positive, but limited. I did not get a strong numismatic vibe from the feedback I could see, but this was seller's only current listing so I sent the following message to the Seller:
"Can you message over some additional photos. I am interested in the coin, but can't tell if the chatter is just luster breaks, or something more. Maybe photos from additional angles will help. Thanks."
No response, so I tried to reach the seller again yesterday, on July 27th, but that attempt was met with: "Unfortunately this seller can't respond to your question." I looked the coin up on the PCGS cert site, but the coin is in a private registry set, so no luck there.
Until today the bids were all in the $6,000 - 9,900 range, so it looked like someone was going to get a deal. The bidding heated up this morning during the final minutes, and the coin eventually sold at 8:01am PST for $17,701.
While I decided to pass, I hope someone got a good coin.
If you were the successful bidder, please let us know how it turns out.
