Not too bad, I looked up recent actual sale prices for PCGS graded coins of the same and averaged around $95 to $120 on all but the AU Lincoln cent. depending on cost to get them slab you won't lose money, and proves your eye is pretty good at choosing coins from often cruddy eBay photos.

Very nice, congratulations on the grades. I enjoy the look of the circle die crack through the starts on the obverse of your 1883 nickel.

A great investment. I think you've made quite a bit of money on this. Great examples of classic coins.

The 1883 looks like a cherry pickers variety with the die Crack going thru the date too. I liked the color on these coins I'm glad they got straight grades.

Grading fees would have been too high for me, but certainly some nice looking coins!

Slerk- I take it you aren't familiar with US coins and their prices by your comment.

I agree with Frog, this wasn't worth the squeeze by any means considering all of the fees, he's in the negative on a few coins actually.

I have seen this seller pictures, to me it is Photoshop it with color highly saturated, and details overly sharpen with descriptions that seller believe it to be much higher grade.

I understand, do what you want with your collection.

Just wanted to inform Slerk that you didn't make "quite a bit of money" as an investment.

We all know canyon city coins.

I recognized the seller's image backgrounds (old time bank checks or something), notorious for AT. I'm glad you got good TPG results but a lot of his "work" gets straight grades. Sounds like you're aware of it.

@NumismaticsFTW, You're right, I don't know much about the prices of American coins inside the country. I must admit, I don't know much about the prices of any coins at all, every time I need to find out the price of any coin, I have to search for information on the Internet.
