Hello everyone!

Thank you for taking the time to read this post.

I have the opportunity to buy a 1888-S Morgan dollar PCGS VF30
and 1880-S Morgan dollar PCGS MS65.

Finally, a 1874-CC Trade dollar PCGS AU58

What do you think a fair value for each coin would be?

Thank you,

CT

but we can't help you unless you post pics. The single most important factor in determining price is eye appeal.

Your user name and nature of the question seem to put you on the pure investor vs pure collector end of the numismatic continuum. Seems to me most here are towards the collector end, and though collectors certainly consider value$ in coins, it's not the primary reason.

So, as coinguy above said, check completed eBay auctions (they go back 90 days) and see what similar coins sold for. good luck

Ummm, I think you're reading way too much into this new member's question.

Nothing in his post would lead me to believe he was a 'pure investor'. And connoting that in a negative light(if I'm understanding you) is insulting. He's asking a very appropriate and important question that all collectors should ask before considering an acquisition.

I can give you the PCGS Price Guide value* for them:

1888-S: $210
1880-S: $165
1874-CC: $2500

*these values are generally known to be high. Expect to spend less.

Other than that, I also suggest checking eBay SOLD listings for comparable coins. If you do have pics of the coins in question, please do post them because, as Mike said, eye appeal is a major determining factor in value.

MikeF gave you a great point. Grade alone is only a part of the value of a Coin. Eye Appeal and availability vs. Collector interest are the other two segments of a three part determination.

and yes, eye appeal is very important when I go to purchase a coin.

88 s vf30 - $100
80 s ms65 - $130
74 cc au58 - $1800

These are based on past auction realized prices for the typical coin for grade. The price could increase with nice eye appeal and or CAC sticker.
