The sold price shown doesn't include the almost 20% buyers fee, and then add in another $13 shipping for each individual item.

Seeing undereducated buyers making unwise decisions during an auction isn't that uncommon, unfortunately.

Most people on those sites are not coin people. They'll believe anything the auctioneer says.

The auctioneer isn't a numismatist either.

Net-Net if the listing says it's worth 100-150 and you got it for $60 + 20% + $13 or $85, you can sell it in your store for at $15-$65 profit.

In my opinion that auction site is not very acceptable by experienced collectors . Sold ? sold to who ? they don't show who it was sold to , maybe just a ploy to get newbie bidders interested .

This is a fine example of 'mob mentality'. If one thinks they found something remarkable - then others become intrigued as well and try to get it 'at all costs' - Just like the OP up above had to question it. I'm sure that when the winner of those auctions will be heavily disappointed when they get the lot of coins.
