    Ok, testing the market - I put my personal three coin set up for $1850 BIN.

    Technically the buyer is helping out the FNQ economy because I need to pay my credit card after the holiday :mad:

    Yeah I think you will see some action on the 3 coin set near the end of your auction unless it's others trying to get an indication on sale price. 499 not bad prob could have done a bit better but couldn't really complain with those levels of profit.

    here there everywhere
    I've been tracking the sales of Dragons since we got back from Perth :cool:
    Here are the results

    First auctioned slabbed UNC ms70 $330 - 280737119552
    BIN that didn't sell for $190 - 260850207902

    A proof auction that did sell 150661871241

    auction $160 - 330611671069

    another auction,but I call BS on the price of $360 for an UNC unslabbed ,maybe if the seller is here they can tell us :)
    110740233685

    Lower priced auction $102 + postage - 190574695096

    A slabbed ms70 BIN $460 didn't sell - 200652801328

    so is it worth flying to the states with 100 (buy price $40ea) dragons getting them slabbed and selling on ebay? profit would be approx $8000 minus grading and slabbing costs, airfares/expenses
    or would one be best selling the lot on silver stackers for $80ea?
    would probably work out similar, except a free trip to the states I guess

    You don't need to fly oversees and pay for expensive hotels etc. Just send me the coins and I'll take care of everything for you :) Just give me one 1 oz dragon for my troubles...

    Forgive my ignorance but why is the american market prepared to pay so much more for slabbed coins? I gathered for whatever reason they like MS70 coins but hiho's post implies even an average grading adds considerable value in the US.

    Is this limited to lunars or in general?

    My old man and lil bro live in the states atm. Hes holding some eagles for me as it was cheap to have them shipped to him (that and i cant let my flesh and blood not have access to silver if shtf). Reckon its worth me having him get my existing coins slabbed and see what kind of prices i can get?

    I pm'd and offered cash on pickup - he / she declined

    Reaks of scam

    So much for the flood of these hitting the market and dragging the price down.

    Well just sold the last of my dragons. Initially bought a roll of 20 1oz bullion, 1 oz proof and 3 coin proof. And now have 37 oz of silver + $1700 and kept 1 bullion coin for myself. Not bad for an initial investment of 1400
