    Congrats on such a high grade barsenault! That Great Wall of China medal is one of my favorite of all Chinese medals...the aesthetic design and the micro detail is extraordinary! I can't stop admiring it. Thank goodness I had the sense to purchase one of these earlier this year....some day I will get it graded and fatty slabbed.

    I guess i was quite fortunate to get a PF70 on mine. I have COA #50 also.
    How much to list this on ebay in the future any opinions?

    You means the Great wall ?

    If yes, you can check the sold transaction PF70 of great wall in ebay.

    Amazing medals and grades indeed. I would like to have whole series graded 69 or 70. 1 down, 9 to go.:p

    70 graded medals of this kind are so scarce that I think there are no definitive rules on what the price ought to be set at. You can use the "Make An Offer" option with your eBay listing and see what offers come in. Also keep in mind that at various times eBay provides some eBay members eBay Bucks discounts which may be a good enticement for those buyers to commit to a sale. Afterall, 4X or 5X eBay bucks on an $X,000 priced item might earn that person a fair amount of spending money on eBay.

    Minimum price should be two times the cost of acquisition and slabbing plus a premium depending on market conditions. If you want a figure for today, I'd say minimum $2000USD for a quick sale but you may want to price it higher.

    The question is why would you want to sell this eirloom? I don't know your personal and business strategy but this medal is likely to be worth even more as the years go by. It is unique enough without adding the PF70. It packs a lot of base metal. Although not bullion I believe that increased precious metal content can buttress such coin/medal values.

    I am trying not to be paternalistic but my suggestion is to place it in 3 successive airtight bags with dessicant pouches in each bag. Then place it somewhere with a cool constant temperature like a bank safety box or elsewhere secure. And then forget it for 10-20 years. If you have many such valuable pieces in longterm storage you may wish to draw up a legal document on top of your will to handle further upkeep of your treasure trove and possible disagregation.

    If you still can't handle that itch and want to sell PM me with a well thought price!

    Hey Missing, when I received my 6 pieces, all of them scored a PF69, I was astounded at how beautiful those things look in the thick, fatty slabs. They really are awesome. I have kept 1 set (3 pieces for the treasure box) and selling the other 2 PF69's on eBay. I believe Andy will be in touch with you about a Beijing piece he is selling. These slabs are seriously awesome!!

    A miniscule rim nick could be the thing that caused a perfect 70 medal to be graded a 69. 69 is close enough to flawlessness that I treat a 69 as if it were the highest grade even though I know that it's possible that a 70 grade of that medal exists somewhere in the world.


    It's very different from coins like ASE's which are very small in size in comparison to some of these Chinese medals (the larger the size, the more surface area that could have imperfections) and also ASE's are produced in the millions. So even an MS70 ASE doesn't catch my attention as much as an MS69 Chinese medal.
