He just wants offers. Ebay forces the seller to put in a BIN just to accept offers which is stupid. So sellers put in a high BIN and collect offers.

Post a link to the listing so we can see everything; I'm too lazy to go searching around. A 1913 5c struck on a dime planchet sold on HA for $46k back in 2010, so it depends on if it's legit and how rare.

I am a eBay shopper, and perhaps I am na´ve. But does anyone really spend that kind of $ on eBay? That is a leap of faith I am not ready to take.

Read my post, he's collecting offers. Listings like this, which makes ebay look bad to people that don't understand, are because of ebay's own stupidity. They will not let you collect offers without putting in a BIN price. So sellers put in a high one so they can collect offers for a while.

I was not referring to the helpful post of Bobby131313 about fake high BIN prices. My question was in general. Do people actually spend $10,000 plus on eBay?

I have, but that includes buying over 1000 items.

@Notatzaddik.... "Do people actually spend $10,000 plus on eBay?"

There are some nice Rolex watches & original 1977 12-Back Star Wars carded action figure sets on there, so yeah way more than $10g's.

Yes, people spend over 10k on Ebay every day.

Also, this isn't a normal nickel. Read the significance if you didn't actually notice.

Here's a 2013 article referencing a couple other examples of a 1944 nickel struck on a steel planchet. One of them in EF40 was being sold by this same seller via mail bid, with a minimum bid of $38k. No idea if it sold. Another in VF20 sold in 2003 for $8050. Seems somewhere around $10k might be likely for this one, but who knows.

if it lacks a mint mark, as implied by the title, I can imagine the hammer price getting that high

Always head-scratching but also fascinating.

I have another hobby other than coins and I have bought and sold items well over 50k. If your passionate about something for rarity or historical reasons then money is nothing. Because I feel if you work hard then you can get money. But if something is rare and you can not find it, then you have to buy it.
