DeputyMax, if you bid now, you might snag it for under melt value.

That coin would actually interest low ball collectors, and the starting price is completely OK.

I don't think I have ever see a Columbian half that worn. That coin circulated for a long time.

Here is another seller with "0" feedback. This one is offering a rare 1927-S Buffalo for only $1,000.

I have enlarged the photo of the reverse to show you that this is the extra-rare "S-less" 1927-S Buffalo.

I just sent this to the 1927 "S" nickel seller.

Your coin is not from the San Francisco Mint. It doesn't have a mint mark under the word FIVE CENTS on the reverse, so it's from the Philadelphia mint.

Hope this helps and good luck with your sale.

Do you think they will change anything in the listing?

That was a nice thing to do.

The seller has relisted it as a 1927-S and still has it at $1,000.

We'll see if he/she takes your message to heart.

Paul Bulgerin, I hope that seller will realize it's from the Philadelphia Mint, and not from the San Francisco Mint.

Let me ask a few questions about the Columbian Half Dollar above.

I know that some coins, in the worst possible naturally worn condition, can command a higher price than a coin that's a single point higher on the Sheldon Numismatic Scale. I don't have any "Lowball" graded coins in my collection so I'm in the dark as to what to look for.

Are Lowball grades popular for coins like this?
Would this coin grade PO1, FR2, AG3 or G4?
Is this strictly a "melt" item in this condition?
Is it possible to buy this coin, have it graded, and try to sell it as a lowball coin, and make a profit?
Does anyone on CCF collect Lowball grades?



The PCGS Population Report for the Columbian Half is P1-37, FR2-111, AG3-151 and G4-63. I think that's for both the 1892 and 1893.

This is interesting... well, to me anyway!

Correct me if I'm wrong, low-ballers, but I think the above Columbian Half Dollar has issues other than excessive wear, like damage/scratches/corrosion. I think the coin would likely get a Details grade, rather than a straight low grade for even wear.

On the Columbian Half, am I the only one who finds Columbus' vacant eye socket on this coin just a little bit creepy?

If a new collector buys this lot of Lincoln cents, the Coin Community may be answering a lot of questions about his "rare errors":

9 Pieces Of Lincoln Cents And 2 Bottle Capped

... and no, I don't have a clue what the seller means by "Bottle Capped."

The same seller with the damaged Lincoln Cents is also selling a cent with a locust embedded inside:
