Looks like 1400-1500 would be a good price for both dealer and seller.
Or you could offer to retail them for her on eBay for 10-15% and you would probably make pretty fair wages for an hour of work.
If I had the chance to buy these, I'd swap out the '75-P for the year I have in my 7070, and peddle the rest.

-edit- I am presuming an experienced guy like fredd can spot a fake one of these from across a smoke filled room.

When Joe Public shows up with seven trade $ and nothing else, that's exactly the first thing you should think.

Exactly my offer.

The high grade ones were very deceptive counterfeits, by which I mean they would fool most collectors who didn't know what to look for, and prolly most of these "we buy silver" types. The most telling feature (aside from the fact that most dealers don't have seven TD) was that all raised surfaces, even the stars, had a sandy surface under mag. Of course, if you never saw a real one, or at least real coins from that era, you'd assume that's how they were supposed to look.

The 76s were obvious. Wear wasn't normal, lettering was thin, strike was very weak, they looked polished, etc.

Interestingly, when I told her they were all fake, her reaction was like "gee, really?" I don't know about you, but if someone just told me that $1400 worth of coins were fake, my reaction would be more like "you're a liar" or "I'm gonna kill someone". I suspect she had already been told.

Thanks for the faith. I'm not that good, but I try to be right more often than wrong.
