    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.

    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................

    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.

    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 have a problem with this seller with a 1998 pf69 colour 1 oz panda. Read the old posts. I think he is tricky.

    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.
