Congratulations on a grreat buy. That is a sweet one and slabbed no less. $14.99 doesn't even cover the slabbing fees and postage today let alone on an ANACS "soap" slab from years ago.

Over the years I've found some great deals are to be had on attributed varieties. It seems we variety collectors are so focused on finding unattributed Cherry Picks we look past the attributed ones because it's "bound to get expensive".
Words of encouragement are one of the major food groups. We need to consume them regularly to thrive and grow.

Petespockets, thank you and I agree with what you said. I'm always so focused on finding unattributed varieties for the collection I forget to check the attributed ones and most of the time Just assume the prices will get too high. But there are some great deals out there and I think it is worth it to take a shot at winning those bids. Sometimes eBay can surprise you!

I also must admit that the "soap" slab was an extra incentive for me . I like the older slabs and still want to cherry a variety in an old PCGS slab.

Nice find CH. What are you going to do with the one you found in the wheat bag now that you have the upgrade?

Thanks Sheldius! I'll probably hang onto the one I have until I can sell it. I know a couple dealers who may be interested but who knows how long it will be until I can get to a show.

I'm not sure when I'd feel safe at a coin show.

Still I am down to only needing a 1909 S VDB, 1914 D, and 1931 S for my daughters wheat collection. So I guess need to go sometime. Not sure I have enough good varieties to cover that, but maybe if I unload a V75 silver eagle I might be able to get a few closer.

Silver has been up quite a bit since it's $15/Ounce norm before COVID. I never saw it rise above $17 before COVID happened and then it hit around $29 a few months back. If you have some spare silver then it may be more valuable sometime soon. I would recommend watching eBay auctions for some of those dates you need. Every once in a while they go for less than retail especially if it is a problem coin. I'm not sure how you want your collection to be but I would try to find a cheap problem example of the coin to fill the hole until I have enough money to upgrade. At least it would be considered "complete".
