  • It currently trends online for 560 CAD. The victorian half dollars usually command strong prices at public auctions.
    Thanks

    It really depends on the look of the coin... Low end unoriginal examples will not bring top dollar.

    Experience the World through Numismatics...it's more than you can imagine.

    That's US$431. I was offered a PCGS EF45 for US$355. Just average for the grade. Any thoughts?

    Thats a pretty good price, maybe the person would just rather be paid instead of offering on ebay, if they did sell it on ebay for the whole $431, they would get about $366. $355 is a cheaper price as well, they usually go for 400-450 in Canadian auctions.
    Thanks

    PCGS EF will not be the same as Canadian EF. Canadian EF would be more like a 50 or even higher.

    Only crappy images from the seller.

    Based on the images, looks "processed." I would look for another one.

    From the looks of it, I would have to see it in-hand. Something doesn't look right.

    agreed - looks bleached to me

  • Agree, something looks off. The colours very dull, probably bleached. I would wait for a better example.

    thanks for posting the images.
    looking at these images, I think VF 30 would be the max.
    Personally I would not buy for over 250 CAN.
    hard to re-sell.
