I don't think the 1868/69 is that far off. PCGS (which is usually high) has the VF40 value listed as $600. On ebay, I found a listing for $350 for a XF25 and a sold XF40 for $650. Unfortunately it is always what the market dictates.

For the 1866/1--6, I think you took a little more of a hit due to the details grade but it could have been worse. I could not really find any good comparisons except an XF for sale at $210 by a dealer that I do not necessarily agree with.

It is always easy to look back and think that you could have take a better route. However, I do feel you did the best for your situation because you were able to liquify some funds for your father without the risk of later fighting with a dissatisfied buyer. That would have taken valuable time and energy away from your family.

As for the GC photos, the coins look 10 times better in person, not sure why they look so flat. They should have several shots with lighting at various angles so people get a really good view of all of the details, which is what I tried to do.
What exactly does 1--6 mean? Never saw anything listed like that before. Was hoping that was a good sign.

I believe that it means that only the 1 and the last 6 were repunched. Having an Rpd or DDO/DDR does not always translate into a higher sale. It al depends on how actively that particular one is being sought at that time.
