Investors starting to wake up to low pop slabbed world coins. My top pop world material did really well. This material so undervalued! Can’t find enough of it. Will there be a breakaway to higher prices. I am going reach out to the CDN people if they can start doing values on countries like they have on Canada.

    What denominations did well for you ?

    Glad to hear that. Did you consign modern coins or older classic ones?

    No I was setup. Sales from my table brisk. I am planning a trip to France see if unslabbed quality material really there. My main worry if I have rolls of gem BU’s to slab how get it back here.

    Higher denom silver early 20th and late 19th century have done well for me. They getting harder to find here - are people gobbling them up keeping low profile?

    Probably, and for good reason. If you can buy gem BUs by the roll in France then they will not be low pop for long. I will be surprised if you can do such a thing with coins made before WW I. I wish you good luck.

    Ah, do share with us some highlights just to get an idea. This market is so labile that it is difficult to really "psyche" out what is going on in real or relative to other coins of similar age.

    Well, just Love coins, period.

    If they did, I wouldn't put much trust in it. There is a limited number of world coins that trade in enough volume to have trackable pricing.

    And if you want to deal in top pops, those definitely don't have enough volume to have pricing. That's partly why they can do so well.

    For most countries, it's WAY too early in the game to put much stock in the pop reports. The TPGs simply haven't seen enough coins yet. But if you use some common sense and do your homework, sure, there are some incredible values in well selected world coins.

    Yes, there is no basis to believe the population reports are anywhere near complete for more than low fraction of 1% of world coinage.
