    Proof read your own title!

    I would have gone for $3k myself had I known.

    Some refer to overgraded slabs as Coffins. I like to think of them as Happy Coins.

    Ha! Thanks for pointing that out! Ya, I collect $2 1/2 Indians, and was like "Dang! Maybe I CAN afford a proof!" Then I looked up the true value. So.. maybe they DID set a record... Cheapest proof 65 sold? Not one they would be proud of though, lol.

    In 1940 that coin could have been bought for less than $10.

    That is embarrassing and should not have got past our proof-reading.
