    Got this one a while back the only numerically graded 1755 Mexico 1 real at NGC. PCGS has 1 as well that is higher that sold for 1560$ not long ago. I tried to win the PCGS example it had last sold for 300$ but for some reason 2 people just went at it and it grades XF-40. Not worth that kind of money in that type of grade at least not to me.

    Here is the much nicer EF-40 PCGS graded that sold for 1560$ on an estimate of 75$ to 150$. Mine cost me 77$. I tried to win the PCGS example but I dropped out at 900$ even that amount felt wrong to be bidding for the grade. At that time zero had been graded by NGC (in any grades) hence my bid. But by luck someone sent in a few 1755's to NGC for grading and not long after mine showed up for sale.

    There must be another reason for the extreme price. Was it an overdate or unknown variety? Even $300 for an XF is pretty strong money, not obscene, but high. $1560 is WAY high!

    I'm BACK!!! Used to be Billet7 on the old forum.

    It was the only 1755 graded when that auction occurred so the highest graded and still is the highest graded. I could not believe the final hammer price it last sold for 300$. I am glad I did not end up buying at 900$ + the juice. Mine is uglier sure but at 77$ I am OK with it.

    Possibly 2 collectors fighting for the highest example graded.

    Nice full 8 beads on this 5 Cent coin. Purchased in a ICCS AU 58 holder. Sent in to NGC and was quite pleased with the new grade.

    Enthusiastic collector of British pre-decimal and Canadian decimal circulation coins.

    My only purchase at FUN from Cody Bushey. Colors are nicer than this NGC "Glamour" shot.

    A number of kobans I've posted on my Koban thread. I also have a couple of neat coins in grading. But this one just arrived yesterday.

    Eliasberg had one in his gold coin collection but this one is a better grade at MS61 vs AU Details.
