I found this interesting lot coming on November 4 at Stacks & Bowers.

Wonder how high the closings will be?

I imagine the closings will be IMO silly money.

Thanks for posting! I may bid on a few if I can get them at the $2-$3 range. What? Did I say something funny?

There's an upcoming auction of civil war tokens and store cards I'll be bidding on. That's how I came across this one.
With Bill Fivaz attached to the lot a few should go for silly money as SCOPRU put it.

Lowball collectors might throw in some higher bids but nothing I would consider.

I could be wrong, but my impression is that if you're in the "just to have one" category, you'd be better off targeting G4 or AG3 than compete with the P1/F2 crowd.

I can appreciate a well worn/circulated coin bc it did what it was intended to and saw a lot. BUT, I don't see the premium side of things that these tend to bring. Especially in a type set when I personally want to see as many details of the original design as intended, why go lowball .
