1878 Vam 79 Anacs Cameo DMPL 63

Post by maessedai » Wed Oct 14, 2020 8:37 pm

I have a recently graded Anacs 1878 Vam 79 Cameo DMPL MS 63. I am having a hard time trying to figure out value. Anacs population report says they have one Cameo DMPL Vam 79 in all grades (My 63). They have 5 DMPL (non-cameo) in MS63 for Vam 79. I can't find sales to compare as DMPL in this vam is very rare. Any idea what it might be worth? Thank you for any help you can give.

Josh:

There is no easy answer to your question.

Market reality that is the value of any pricey Morgan varies a lot between grading companies, and usually in this order: PCGS, NGC, ANACS. The value of DMPLs in all holders often varies like mad, depending upon whether a given coin is "all there" as a DMPL or if it's closer to being a strong PL. Every potential buyer gets to make that decision for themself, regardless of what the holder says.

VAM 79 is not a real rare or high demand date, and non-DMPL/PL 63s tend to be very affordable. Here are some previous sale prices in multiple grades to consider:

1878 7TF R78 79 64 NGC Jan-20 H $960
1878 7TF R78 79 64 PCGS Feb-20 GC $644
1878 7TF R78 79 64 PCGS Dec-13 E $335
1878 7TF R78 79 64 NGC Feb-15 E $200
1878 7TF R78 79 63 DM NGC Jan-17 H $1,293
1878 7TF R78 79 63 PL PCGS Dec-11 VQ $422
1878 7TF R78 79 63 PL PCGS Sep-20 E $375
1878 7TF R78 79 63 PL PCGS Dec-17 H $360
1878 7TF R78 79 63 PL PCGS Apr-20 E $338

1878 7TF R78 79 63 PCGS Oct-12 VQ $259
1878 7TF R78 79 63 PCGS Jul-16 E $203
1878 7TF R78 79 63 PCGS Aug-13 H $170

1878 7TF R78 79 63 raw Apr-16 E $131
1878 7TF R78 79 63 PCGS Dec-13 H $106
When in doubt... don't.
