Ummm, anybody kind of agree with me that I got a pretty good deal on this one?

Any grade guesses?

Now for my dilemma...I've wanted one of these for quite some time for my 7070, but between the history and being a Berkeley grad, I can't quite see cracking this one out.

Nice pick up! Bay-Bridge half-dollars in these holders are not very common. As such, I wouldn't remove it from the holder. It will always have collector appeal while in the special packaging.

It's always tough to grade from internet images... From what I saw, however, the coin appears to have mint state details, but it may also have a little rub that would make it an AU. I would say it would fall in the AU-55 to MS-62 range if graded by PCGS or NGC.

See my previous post on this coin for additional information about the coin and holder: https://www.coincommunity.com/forum...IC_ID=115776

Thanks, Commems. I actually remembered and read your post in the seconds before ordering. Even if it's AU-55, with it being in that holder and $90, I'm thrilled. I can't recall seeing any in those holders go for below $200. Now I have to pick something else for my 7070. 2 commem holes to go with one reserved for an Oregon Trail.

Agreed that you have a nice price on a great piece of commemorative ephemera. Well done.

I personally would keep it as is ... and find another Bay Bridge for your set.

Having a signed coin is really nice. I'd keep it in the packaging. It should add some value to it.
