That's $1,475 including the juice? How much time?

matthewvincent,

It does speak to me and has since I first saw it. I suspect, though, that it has been cleaned and that PCGS would mark it as such. If it weren't for that, I'd certainly be a buyer.

Suspicion or fear?
Two questions remain:
Is it genuine?
Is it cleaned?

I say "Yes" to genuine and "No" to cleaned.
Other may now give their opinions.
How much time remains on the auction?
Brother, can you spare a "BARBER" dime?

I agree with the grade of VF20, but the coin is over priced for a raw coin. It is a nice looking coin. From the photos the coin does not look cleaned. Take the same money and look for one in a TPG holder as there is much less risk.

It's real but the price with BP is way over the top.

I paid $1375 for my 1800 which was PCGS/CAC VG 10, but that was 5 years ago, but all the same

The 1799 is a very pretty coin, though, and if money's not an issue and you're not worried about getting out of it later, then it might not be such a bad price. That being said, my rule of thumb when dealing with any coin from the era over $500-$1000 is that unless it's a series about which I have a high degree of knowledge (e.g. Large Cents) I will buy certified every time, not only to protect me, but also to protect resale value.

Too pricey for raw, no upside especially after grading fees even if it goes straight.

Here is another 1799 VF20: https://coins.ha.com/itm/early-doll...n-071515-new
Sold for $1,440 all in.
Personally, I would never buy raw coins that run well over $1,000. For the simple reason that there are plenty of graded coins available in the same price range and similar eye appeal, but with less risk to you as buyer.

I do know the pre-1800 coins well (plus the capped bust halves), so I'm comfortable buying them raw. Part of the enjoyment for me is finding them raw and doing the evaluation. I don't worry about the cost so much and don't mind even overpaying a bit if I really like the coin. The only coins I typically buy post-TPG are high-grade ones that are nearly impossible to find raw (e.g., an MS-64 1835 bust half that had toned bronze).

The auction ended a few minutes ago and I did not bid. Sale at $1450, which is about right I think.

this is a nice coin. the overall eye appeal and even wear really make this stand out. I have it at a solid VF20 and I dont see any reason why this coin would details.
