*** Edited by Staff to Add Year / Mintmark / Denomination to Title. Titles are Important! ***

I'm still a newbie when it comes to varietals. But I saw this at a local auction. Everybody else was spending hundreds on sets of colorized SAEs. Nobody must have know what DDO meant. PCGS app said $150 for one in this grade. But I assume their price guide is way inflated. Plus the fields are cloudy and the slab is beat to heck. Figured I would go as high as $40, got it for $17. Did I do ok?

$17 was a steal. Personally I'd crack it and dip it to remove the hazing.

The plastic looks very "road weary." I think I'd just have it re-slabbed..

You don't want to dip proof coins. It will remove what brightness of the proof finish. Best to leave the coin untouched. Doing the wrong thing could reduce the value as much as 90%. Re-slab alone would be better. (but check ahead to see what it might cost?)

Did you do OK?!?!?

That was a great pick up. You've been knocking it out of the park.

Took it to a coin shop today and he offered me $15. We live in a smaller city and he said varietals just don't sell well here. If I sell it, and I prob will, I'll list it on ebay.

I've dipped proofs before without a problem. You just have to do it quickly. I even had one I dipped grade PF68 DCAM. So yeah, thinking about cracking it, but then it would be harder to sell without the PCGS opinion on the variety. Does anyone know, do I have to be a PCGS member just for a reholder? And I wonder if during the reholder, the would "restore" it. But joining for just one coin restoration and grading seems like a waste.

Last week I sent a whole bunch of modern commems to ANACS for the "dollars and cents" special. $10 each and $29 to "conserve" the whole batch of 20. Could have sent this one with. They would have dipped and regraded. Nice shiny coin, nice scratch free holder. But am I losing more in the drop in value from PCGS to ANACS than I am gaining in making the coin shiny again. Oi vey!

Coop, I've been dipping proofs for a while, it's perfectly fine as long as they are silver or the dip is diluted.

Lancek, you do have to be a member for a reholder or restoration. Besides the drop in value between ANACS & PCGS is negligible. It's a specialist variety, the service doesn't matter.
