The gold eagles would be would be worth USD$2370 and Eisenhowers, Kennedys, Barbers, Peace, Morgans and all that is silver right? They probably all have a numismatic premium in MS state though, the 64 quarters probably not so much. I am more Atlantic Canadian coinage but it seems good. Those 32 pages where hard to read. Do you have the Red Book prices and auction house prices listed out by each coin yet as well as it's ASW?

Have you actually seen pictures of all these coins? If you're buying sight unseen, I would pass. Eighty-five hundred dollars is a lot of dough to be tossing around.

I think anybody can put together a spreadsheet and publish it to Google Docs. Proof is in SEEING the coins.

I don't know, but the 1822 Peace dollar and the 1922 Morgan and the two (2!) NGC 1923 Morgans ought to be worth that much all by themselves.
Then again, it just might mean that his list leaves a bit to be desired in its accuracy.

There are people that buy cars sight unseen and are sorry. There are people that buy all sorts of stuff sight unseen and are sorry. If you haven't or can't see these, you may end up with a lot of just STUFF.

If you do not know enough to determine coin values on your own you really should not be buying coins especially for this amount of money. I know this sounds a bit harsh but we see it on this forum too frequently.

People buying coins that turn out to be fakes and did not know they were because they lacked the knowledge required to know what to look for. Overpaying for coins that were cleaned, over graded, et cetera for the same reasons. Not enough knowledge of grading and detecting problem coins.

To properly assess what would be a fair price for this guys coins they really need to be seen in hand and not from photographs.

He has an 1853 gold dollar valued at $20,000? Last page, is that what that's saying?

With all due respect, I'm not going through 36 pages of writing lacking so much as a single image to try and price coins I've never seen based on someone else's opinion of grade. That's kind of ludicrous to expect.

Basically nobody is going to go out on a limb and give you a direct answer here. The liability is too great with the given information

I don't buy or sell so I should not even be typing this.

That said I've read over and over here from those that do.

"Buy the coin not the (plastic) holder or piece of paper." Thanks, Doug.

edit: I think a lot of homework needs to be taken into consideration. Thanks, Doug.
Second opinions are always recommended. Rookies thoughts!
Two sides to every coin. The edge makes three.
Side Note: Sometimes I feel like a nut, sometimes I don't.
