Highly suspect. Pandas were no longer double sealed after 2005 if I'm not mistaken.
wow those are ugly with those massive white spots.
I emailed that seller a while back asking about if all the PF69's they had were spotted because that seller was auctioning off tons of those in PF69 & PF70 so i was going to try and grab up a couple good deals. He said all the PF-69's have spots so i never did buy any of them.
I really like this metal and i got the 1oz and 5oz but it is sad to see such bad spotting on these coins.
It seems that a batch of these have come up with tons of spotting while others are fine.
I am wondering right now if those were one one of the now famous "small" D?
Hahhaa... someone bid on my one!
It's only at $10AUD at the moment!
Alas, mine is the more common Large D.
I didn't want you to feel bad buddy I just bid 51
80 to help
Call it a speculative buy but I just purchased a small D for $500.00
time will tell ,IMHO i believe it to be more rare than the 2003 mirror for sure, you would see many more pop up on the market by now ,if they where that abundant , just my 2 cents, maybe not graded so soon but for sure you would see OMP ,if there was that many around (remember the 2003 mirror?) these 2 varieties are easily distinguishable especially when you compare them side by side so folks will know the difference pretty readily not like the 2003 mirror that kept everyone guessing including me time will tell
I'll get to working on the coin compendium specimens. That will (eventually) give us some population estimates.
Price of the 1992 SD MS 69 Small Date Panda seem to be skyrocketing.
The last auction just ended at US$588.00
Funny thing is that I just purchased one from Clark Smith a couple of weeks ago for $375.00.
That might seem a little high but the older pandas seem to be like this, drastic price differences up or down within weeks or months. I have been trying to get one of these in 69 for a while in the $400-$500 range and found 0 , this seems to be a very hard coin to get in a 69 usually with a bad luster or white spots , I have graded quite a few in OMP and never yet been able to get a 69. Many may disagree but I think this may be the next most valuable silver 1 oz panda in 69 after the "Big 3" , excluding proofs and some of the newer varieties. Anyone else have much experience in getting these graded?
On a separate note 1998 Large Date MS 69s have been tanking lately.
The last few auctions have finished below $310.00.
I have graded 3 1ms 69 ,2 ms68 not exactly stellar results
I'm not sure if this is the best time of year to be auctioning the only 1oz AU Frosted 2000 coin to ever grade MS70.
1.5 days to go and it's only at $3700.. someone may grab a Christmas bargain.
I am not even sure if this is a seller i could trust with the big $$$
I dont trust. All items bellow 60 uss and less.
Maybe yennus could go pick it up in person?
Closed at $8261! Not bad for a X'mas day end time.
