I'll always beat the drum for the four attributes of a buy-it-if-you-see-it Buff:
Matching EDS obverse and reverse die states
Strong strike
Minimal die polishing
High grade for the date

This coin is 0-for-4. It's LMDS obverse, EMDS reverse, average strike for the date, with die polishing. Disregarding any discussion of originality, it's probably MS-66. That's a $40-ish coin. If it runs to MS-67, it's still only a $400-ish coin. It has one too many legs to be a $1500 coin.

No clue on this. It would be a hard pass for me at any price on a bourse floor.

Big pass from me as well. I think the price got so high because people aren't reading the description and are thinking they are getting a whole roll of mint state buffs, at least that's the only answer I can logically come up with. Any other reason is the top bidders are just nuts.

Possibly a similar sale like the Golden gate bridge.

These guys have a good working formula - indicating coins are from a fresh roll, slab coins are at a fixed price most of the time and the word GEM BU is almost used in all of their auctions. Trial and error and understanding buyers in the EBAY market has produced this entity. It works very well for them. Their coins look good. Take a gamble? John Lorenzo, Numismatist.
