Today, I purchased a set of Walking Liberty Halves off of Craigslist for $225.00. This was also the first time I have ever purchased anything off of Craigslist. The set consists of 20 Halves from 1941-1947 all are in F-VF condition. Do you think I made a wise purchase?
I was very nervous about dealing with Craigslist. The seller was extremely nice and appreciated the fact that I wanted these for my collection. I have been on the fence about starting a Walking Liberty Half collection for sometime. I decided that eBay and the local dealers were a little too pricy. And thanks to other members who have posted their experiences with Craigslist, I figured I'd give it a try.
Thank you again for all the members who posted their craigslist finds, you gave me the confidence I needed to make a good purchase.
Sounds like a good deal, especially if the coins are original and uncleaned. Common-date circulated Walkers with cleaning or other problems are strictly bullion pieces but attractive original coins usually fetch some premium over spot from collectors. Please post photos of your purchase when you get it!
I believe you got a good deal on your Walkers. I have had some unbelieveable good luck buying wheats on Craigs list. You just need to use some common sense and be aware of your surroundings when making a purchase.
