New at Numismatics. Have About 200 coins on eBay.
My question is this time of year slow sales.
Went from a run to turtle.
Christmas to now very few sales.
Is this normal ?

In my experience yes. You would think coins would be more calendar in-elastic, since they aren't typical Christmas presents. Maybe it's people getting their credit card bills from everything they bought in Nov, Dec. Lot's of business types have a slow Jan, Feb. Restaurants, retail, auto sales.

Iv noticed seasonal coins tend to sell seasonally on ebay. I saw tonz of Christmas coins all year not selling for low prices. Closer to Christmas the same coins were posted and selling for twice the price I saw them listed all year. Same goes for remembrance day etc.

How common / commoditized is your inventory? As a buyer, I feel the more unique / interesting stuff is still strong post-holidays this year. My sniping is getting out sniped like I have never seen it before!
My hoard of '82s is up to 241! 218 BC x 1, 118 BC x 3, 18 BC x 1, 82 x 1, 182 x 1, 282 x 2, 382 x 1, 582 x 2, 682 x 1, 782 x 2, 882 x 1, 982 x 4, 1082 x 1 1182 x 8, 1282 x 2, 1382 x 1, 1482 x 6, 1582 x 13, 1682 x 17, 1782 x 60, 1882 x 68, 1982 x 45

My eBay store has been super busy the last three weeks. But up in Canada maybe that means folks are not outdoors as much, and buying coins more!

I have a wide selection of errors and varieties.
Starting to go more towards Lincolns.
Wondering what I should do when the last penny goes through the mints in 2022.

Wishful thinking? I am not holding my breath. We are sure to see 2023 cents next year.

But if this were the last year then look to Canada for an answer. They have been centless for ten years. How well have their cent sales on eBay gone since then?
