Just wondering about a fair price for this medal in the following conditions.
Is $2000 us a good price for a package including the 3.3oz and 1 oz god of longevity medals both graded at pf 68?
Any info/opionions would be appropriated.
Thanks in advance.
Quick look on eBay for PF69 3.3oz is $2000 US past sales & PF68 1oz is $560 US.
I guess $2000 would be a 'fair' price but not very very cheap.
Disclaimer: I have no idea what it's worth, I always wanted this medal set but can't afford it.
Thanks Fishball. That is what I was thinking. Ok price but nothing great. If PF 69 3.3 oz is USD$2000, what do you think a PF 68 3.3 Oz would be worth? Isn't the PF 68s less in liquid/demand than the PF 69s?
They aren't really less liquid, but the lower demand means lower prices. They sold instantly in 69 grade for $2k, and they sell raw for about $1k. So I'd put a 68 around $1500.
Together with the 1 oz, $2k is a fair deal.
I think is better pay a few more and buy a 69. If the market continue soft. I think you will have others oportunitys to buy this coin or other in better grades than 68.
But if you like a lot the coin. I think is better in 68 than omp. But i think the expensive coins need to have the ncs.
I offered the guy $1500.00 for both - PF 68 medals. Lets see if he accepts it. I actually have my mind set on the PF 69 for $2000.00 but just can't make myself pull the trigger yet.
Good luck with it.
i think at 1500.00 for both is a good deal, if you are a gambler and the coins look sharp(undergraded) when you get them ,you crack them out of the holders send them for conservation and hope for a better grade ,your pretty safe to wind up with what you got 68, and you never know ,I have seen nice coins upgraded quite a few times................
Unfortunately the seller did not respond to my offer.
I have finally got a PF 68 for $1026.00 . This purchase has made my week. Very happy about it. Now all I have to do is look for a PF 69 for a good price and also a 5 oz PF 69 Guanyin/Kuanyin for a great price.
That is a killer deal!
A Pf 69 3.3 oz just sold for USD $2025.00.
The buyer is blind. I emailed the seller earlier suspecting forehead damage, and he acknowledge and placed a bigger picture in the auction highlighting the area.
+1. It looks like that bloke has a third eye embedded in his forehead.
I just noticed that. I wonder how it got graded PF 69?
I have a problem with this seller with a 1998 pf69 colour 1 oz panda. Read the old posts. I think he is tricky.
Can't find - can you link the post ?
I was lucky I didn't buy the PF 69 3.3 oz longevity from him. Was almost going to pull the trigger on that medal.
I bought a 1985 brass version of this. Now need the 1987 silver version Seems same design.
