I'm considering buying a partial coin collection from someone. Asking price is $300. Looking for advice.the photos are included in deal. The photos are not an exhaustive list of what is included, but I felt based off of these I should be able to get at least a little guidance. Thanks for looking and I appreciate the feedback in advance.

A collection like this can't be evaluated or appraised from such small images.

@Coinfrog -

I'm just looking for a ballpark on if $300 is too high.

It's basically impossible without seeing the grade and condition of the other keys and seme-keys.

@ca, I see that there are no coins in the 1909 S VBD, 1914 D, 1914 S, 1920 S, 1922 no D, 1924 D, and 1931 S slots. Is it true that those are the missing coins from this set? Even knowing which coins are actually in the set would help.

That 1948 cent looks aftermarket plated—is a magnet attracted to it?

All good questions. I need to get more answers. It's a l9ng distance thing. The seller is a state away.

Spence - haven't checked them all, but there are clearly coins in the '14D and '14-S slots, they're just slightly mispositioned.

There is no way to evaluate that collection from the photos you provided . Some better dates and mints are missing . From what I see there is no way I would pay $300 for it .

In Memory of Butch L.
and Jim U. rest in peace .

I think that might be coins from the following pages showing through.

My somewhat uninformed opinion is that $300 is a little too high for the set presented.

KenKat - if that's the case, then Houston I think we have a problem.

@CAM: I saw so many like this for sell. In your case all BN, and very much circulate. Missing a lot of good ones. The 09-S you put was clean in acid and the acid made his finger print. Me I will stay away from. For 300 you can have better.

This thread is getting confusing. Please simply advise if this set has any of these and show clear pics of each - '11-S, '14-D, '22-D, '22-no D, '24-D, '26-S, '31-S.

So far, price seems way too high.

The 1909-S reverse looks to have a rim dent near E Pluribus, which could halve its value. As the only key date clearly present, I'd say $300 is too much. If the 1914-D is present and undamaged, then $300 is still high, just not as overpriced.

To keep it simple, I wouldn't buy this for $300.
