Accuracy of Coin Trackers coin values

Hello everyone, I'm a new member to CU...Recently I read an article about the top 20 or 25 most valuable U.S. coins and it noted several quotes from Coin Tracker. So I went to cointrackers.com and since I have a roll each of p & d put in 2010 D one cent, it showed a value of $10.50 each (excellent condition) so my question is how could that be? Tried a few other modern common coins and they were just maybe twice face value or so.

    Sites like that are often wrong, use PCGS CoinFacts instead.

    Given that 2010 lincoln cent bu rolls are available on ebay for $6 shipped, $10.50 is definitely too high.

    In general, ebay Sold Items is a good way to check what things are selling for.
    Under Sold Items, I see a set of 3 rolls 2009-2010 which sold for $6 with free shipping,
    so the value is more like $2 per roll.
    Though some sold for more, including $6.

    The problem with these types of valuation sites is the language ambiguity, what is "excellent condition" mean on the Sheldon scale?
