Hello everyone,

I've been lurking on this site for a couple of years now and finally decided to sign up. I'm mostly into coin roll hunting and looking for deals on eBay. I've found several interesting error coins in my change and will be showing the coins in the near future.

Anyhow, I recently purchased a 1899 $5 gold eagle for $495 and I was wondering if it was a good deal. It's graded ms-64 by NGC however the Hologram is slightly damaged.

I've attached a few photos of the coin for you to look at. Thank you so much for your help.

If it is truly an MS64 I think you got a good deal. Looking at "Coins" magazine it shows an MS63 going for $515.

That is a good price for sure. Don't worry about the hologram at all - it does not affect the value of this coin that I'd value at $600+ easily.
