value of a 1915 proof-66 buffalo nickel

BUFFNIXXBUFFNIXX Posts: 2,701 ✭✭✭✭✭

just got this beautiful 1915 matte proof PR-66 buffalo nickel. The pcgs price guide has a value of $2200 while the
ngc guide says $2800. Where lies the truth, somewhere in between or ????

And I also noticed that the price for a pcgs proof-65 1916 buff is $3500 while the same coin from the ngc price guide
is $4000! Why such a big difference?

    Very nice piece. Price guides are just that - guides. There is a big price jump from 66 to 67 but both the 66 figures sound optimistic based on recent auction results which average around $1800-$1900.

    I think it's ludicrous that the NGC guide is higher than PCGS. PCGS is much tougher on Buffs.

    Auction results don't lie. Here they are for your coin:

    I assume the above table does not include ‘the juice” as the fees are called?

    No, all results for auctions on Coinfacts include the juice.

    IMHOP............those prices are suggested prices for coins encapsulated in a particular TPG's holder .

    it would sell faster closer to $1700 than $2200, but it is a nice piece - a CAC sticker would help for some buyers
