1886 o vam 1A2

Post by JASONKFLO » Thu Jun 18, 2020 2:26 am

I think I got a decent deal on the AU-58 Vam 1A2 7 clashed 86-O
I got it for less than regular 1886 O AU58 money and its a very nice coin.

is there any premium over basic 86O? not for sale and never will be :)

I've never been aware there is a "regular AU58 money" price for an 1886-O. That is a date+grade for which a wild range of prices is normal and every individual coin is priced separately, due to the huge spread between AU50 Greysheet and MS60 Greysheet.

There is a significant premium for all of the E-reverse varieties. The #1 factor is, a potential buyer must agree that the coin is problem-free and would get into a holder at the same grade you purchased it.

In the past, value has been consistently highest for coins in attributed PCGS holders. Previous sales prices have varied tremendously, Each AU58 coin is different, depending upon its lustre, eye appeal, etc. A rough ballpark figure is $400, although some have gone for much more and many have gone for less.

Value has been consistently lowest for raw coins, and it drops off quickly from 58 to lower AU grades. A rough ballpark guess for a true 58 is $200, although you can easily find dealers who will try to sell them for much more.
When in doubt... don't.

Looks like it might already be in a holder? Yes, there's a premium for these E clashers!
(but I'd be happy to pay you normal AU58 pricing for it!)

Yes it is graded AU-58 already and I got it for 239.00
which I thought was a good deal.
It has 7 clashes not much chatter either. Great luster and great eye appeal . Very nice coin.
Much nicer than many AU-58 86 0 I have seen . with no wear I think it would grade MS-63 + Maybe 64

I think I got such a good deal because its in a ICG holder and the sellers photos where horrible so when he offered 20% off and had 30 day return I jumped on it knowing there was potential for a nice coin. I am confident if I broke it out of the ICG holder and resubmitted it would still come back AU-58
