Numismedia.com values a 1878 s ms63pl at retail = $188 Withot vam
SSDC new vam pricing guide values 78-s vam 76 ms63 retail PCGS/NGC $600
I would say 2k is way to high even though its a nice variety and in higher grade
The old vamview of 2015 valued a ms 63 at 1k
Neither above guides list a PL example - My thought is 1k or under $800-1k IMHO

Much more information is needed.
– Is it raw or certified?
– if certified, then by which TPG?
– Is 63PL stated on the holder?
– Is VAM 76 stated on the holder?
– Is the coin white and lustrous, dark and dull, or somewhere in-between?

Each answer can greatly affect a value estimate, and some dramatically. Posting pictures will answer a lot of questions.
When in doubt... don't.

Here is everything I have for VAM 76.

It's a healthy premium coin, but as you can see I have no record for a PL in any grade. That would seem to certainly increase its rarity, but does that also mean it has dramatically more demand? I'm not at all sure of that. Top 100 set PLs have a niche group of collectors, but does a similar niche exist for the Hitlist? Again I'm not so sure.

My gut agrees with Scott that $2,000 is too strong. I also agree with his $800-$1,000 guesstimate.
