I just don't understand why an OBW roll of 37-D's came from the Federal Bank of San Francisco .


Or how said roll has a gem 1913, 1915, 1928, and 1937 all in the same roll lol, sellers a joke (and a successful con artist).

bidiots probably think they are getting the entire roll

seller has 100% positive feedback because they have somehow had 63 non-positive feedback comments revised

I didn't even see that about the "original roll" or the conflicting mint info. I did notice that there are numerous "private listing" bids on all of his listings.

If it's not slabbed I'm not interested.
Too much money for a raw coin.
Describe it as if there were no picture.

If one feels uneasy about doing business with a particular seller, just walk away. I agree with Kanga on the raw coin aspect.

The "private" current top bidder has bid on 384 items, 80% with this seller. Somebody really likes Canyon City Coins.

I'll always beat the drum for the four attributes of a buy-it-if-you-see-it Buff:
Matching EDS obverse and reverse die states
Strong strike
Minimal die polishing
High grade for the date

This coin is 0-for-4. It's LMDS obverse, EMDS reverse, average strike for the date, with die polishing. Disregarding any discussion of originality, it's probably MS-66. That's a $40-ish coin. If it runs to MS-67, it's still only a $400-ish coin. It has one too many legs to be a $1500 coin.

No clue on this. It would be a hard pass for me at any price on a bourse floor.

Big pass from me as well. I think the price got so high because people aren't reading the description and are thinking they are getting a whole roll of mint state buffs, at least that's the only answer I can logically come up with. Any other reason is the top bidders are just nuts.

Wasn't that the Brooklyn Bridge ?

These guys have a good working formula - indicating coins are from a fresh roll, slab coins are at a fixed price most of the time and the word GEM BU is almost used in all of their auctions. Trial and error and understanding buyers in the EBAY market has produced this entity. It works very well for them. Their coins look good. Take a gamble? John Lorenzo, Numismatist.
