I guess I struck it rich on my recent submission

Not really, but I'm willing to sell these at a fraction of the PCGS indicated values, 😂.

These were coins I had from studying abroad in Spain in 2005-2006. I had a submission of 16 in total, when I added to my set registry, the value was reporting well over $700k. I started looking at these and I think their valuations might be just slightly high? This is just a sample of them

    Those do seem a tad optimistic to me as well. :# But congrats on your nice results.

    Cool. If you can sell them for pennies on the dollar you will will still probably come out well. I wasn't aware PCGS listed non-US values... maybe this is why.

    If you can get even a small fraction of the stated "current value" ... SELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLl!!!!!!!!!!!

    Congratulations on your heathy return although they are a tad high in their value😉

    Looks like decimal placement is 5 spaces too far to the right.

    Return shipping must have been expensive. :)

    A good example of how pop reports can mislead one on values. Low pops can mean that the subject coin just isn't one that people bother to get certified.

    Agreed, not sure why most people would pay to get these slabbed, that's why they are all pop 1/1. For me these specific examples had sentimental value and I wanted to share truviews with non collectors who were in my study abroad course. These coins are not worth the cost of the plastic they are in, but for me it was about protecting them and adding to my registry sets.
