I am looking for some advice on how to price this coin and where to list. I don't normally sell (or buy) what I consider to be expensive coins ($500+).

I have a 1964 PR65 DCAM dollar in PCGS holder (aka SP 65)



The cameo on the bust looks a bit darker in PCGS trueview photo's, it is a nice bright even silver cameo in hand.





I've looked at
Ebay: ICCS SP66 Cameo - $950 coins look hazy (for sale)
J&M: ICCS SP65 Cameo - $650 (no image) (for sale)
ICCS SP66 Cameo - $950 (no image) (for sale)
Coins&Canada: SP65 - $650-$900 (sold)
SP66 - $600 (sold)
Charelton 2015: SP65 - $650 (?)
Heritage: All over the board

In short, not really sure how to price it and it seems like 1970 and earlier specimen coins are a bit hot right now, so it seems like a good time to sell.

Your thoughts and perspectives would be greatly appreciated.

That's the thing about pre-'67 specimens...there are so few out there that it's often hard to get a good price estimate.

Like you said, the C&C website shows a good example of this...a few sold for ~$650, and then someone really wanted one and shelled out $900.

Have you looked at EBay "sold" items?

From my personal experience, selling it on iCollector or Torex will likely get you the most.

For example, a 1949 10c SP65 sold at Torex for $357 last November (including premium); whereas a similarly graded one was (and still is) on Ebay for $300 that was up at the same time as the auction.



Alternatively you could list it on Ebay at a higher price with a BIN and Best Offer.
However, I had a 1965 10c SP-66 HC listed using that option, but it languished for months and months.
I finally switched it to an Auction-style and it sold for just under what I had it listed for at BIN.

Again...

johnnysprawl that actually was my 1949 10 cents that sold at TCNC (Torex) last fall. I have been consigning a number of surplus things to them lately with very nice results. My sense is that they have access to a group of high end buyers that just don't bother with eBay on a regular basis. While eBay is great for selling middle of the road items, I have found that it is not so good for selling higher end pieces. In this COVID world with people stuck at home, I think that a number of well-heeled buyers are active now that were not around in recent years and they seem to be present at recent TCNC auctions.

Yes, that's what I was thinking too.

Congrats on your sale!

Thanks all for your thoughts and help.

I'll give it a shot on ebay and contact TCNC, maybe it is about time some money comes back the other way ;-). If I read their T&C correctly, they take 10% + buyers premium. Any advice before contacting them to submit?
