2022-W Proof Gold Buffalo - PCGS Advanced Release
Saw this "Advanced Release" offered at APMEX. What is "Advanced Release?" Is this coins released at a show? How would Advanced Release compare to First Day of Issue? Seems like the Advanced Release would precede the first day of issue and actually be the first day of issue. APMEX puts a $1300 premium on the AR vs the FDOI. That's got to be pure profit just for being special enough to get an Advanced Release? What does it take to be eligible to receive an advanced release from the USM?
Per USM, the release date is May 12.
Does this mean that APMEX was able to get their coins before May 12? And if so will that reduce the amount of time for First Strike eligibility?
So many questions...
